DECISION: The Commissioner of Labor's timeliness objection is overruled.
The initial determination disqualifying the claimant from receiving benefits, effective June 16, 2012, on the basis that the claimant voluntarily separated from employment without good cause is overruled.
The claimant is allowed benefits with respect to the issues decided herein.
