APPELLANTS BRIEF AND APPENDIX
Legal Issues in RESPONDENT-DEPARTMENT'S BRIEF AND APPENDIX:
Employees, who are discharged due to employment misconduct, that is, conduct that shows a serious violation of the employer's reasonable expectations, or conduct that shows a substantial lack of concern for their employment, are ineligible for all unemployment benefits. Steven Hansen did not report for work or call in on the day he was due back after serving a three-day suspension for attendance problems. While he may have had a good reason for not reporting for work, did his failure to call in amount to employment misconduct? The Unemployment Law Judge found that Hanson was discharged for reasons of employment misconduct and that he was ineligible for all unemployment benefits.
