Wisconsin Labor and Industry Review Commission --
Summary of Wisconsin Court Decision relating to Unemployment Insurance

Subject: Roy Reynolds (Hrg. No. 95601764WK) v. American TV Distribution Center and LIRC, Case No. 95-CV-005668 (Wis. Cir. Ct., Milwaukee Co., May 8, 1996)

Digest Codes: VL 1080.09

Plaintiff, who worked in a warehouse, quit his job claiming that he was being harassed by other employes and his supervisor. He claimed that on his last day of work his supervisor said to him, "Stop bitching, you come in here every day nagging me," and that a co-worker did not want to work with him on that day. Concluding that these claims were not sufficient to establish good cause attributable to the employer for the employe to quit, and that he had failed to offer specific evidence about any other incidents, the commission denied benefits.

Held: Affirmed. The single incident testified to by the plaintiff did not establish good cause attributable to the employer for the plaintiff to quit.
