Imbesi Christensen wins hearing on behalf of former Chase employee
The law firm Imbesi Christensen received notification of an award issued in favor of the firm's client, a former employee of JP Morgan Chase Bank NA. See A.L.J Case No. 013-32086

Chase notified the Department of Labor that the former employee voluntarily left his employment without good cause and should not be entitled to unemployment insurance benefits. The Honorable Michelle Burrowes issued an award, in favor of the firm's client, after an in-person hearing was conducted. The decision affirmed a determination by the Department of Labor that the employee had a valid reason to terminate his employment with Chase.
Specifically, the decision set forth the following:

The claimant is allowed benefits with respect to the issues decided herein.
