Judicial Review Dismissed  No Commission  -

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
voluntarily leaving employment  just cause  undue pressure to quit 


The Commission denied the claimant’s claim because she had voluntarily left her employment without just cause. The claimant voluntarily left her employment and accepted a severance package. She inferred from this that the store was closing. She admitted that she could have requested a transfer to another store, but did not do so as she believed the request would be denied. She later stated on her application that she had felt pressured to leave her position. The BOR allowed her appeal, finding that she was not disqualified from receiving benefits because she had left her employment due to undue pressure by her employer in accordance with paragraph 29(c)(xiii) of the EI Act. In dismissing the application for judicial review, the FCA found that there was no reviewable error made by the Umpire to warrant the Court’s intervention.
