BOARD OF REVIEW HOLDING: “The mere fact that the claimant worked only two days does not make inapplicable Subsection 29(5) of the Act.”

FACTS: The claimant voluntarily resigned to accept work with another employer. His successive employment lasted only two days, because he was laid off by his new employer.

DECISION: The claimant is not disqualified for voluntarily leaving.

RATIONALE: “When the claimant left Shreve Steel Erection, Inc., he did so for the purpose of accepting what he thought would be permanent full-time work with Michigan Boiler but for reasons unknown to the claimant, he was terminated from this employment after working only two days. The mere fact that the claimant worked ony two days does not make inapplicable Subsection 29(5) of the Act.

“The Board finds that the claimant left his employment with Shreve Steel Erection, Inc. to accept permanent full-time work with Michigan Boiler and the disqualification provision under Subsection 29(1)(a) of the Act is not applicable by virture of the provisions of Subsection 29(5) of the Act.”
