SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, THIRD DEPARTMENT
June 27, 1968
IN THE MATTER OF THE CLAIM OF JEANNE A. LOMBARD, APPELLANT. MARTIN P. CATHERWOOD, AS INDUSTRIAL COMMISSIONER, RESPONDENT
Gibson, P. J., Herlihy, Reynolds, Aulisi and Staley, Jr., JJ., concur in memorandum by Reynolds, J.
Appeal by the claimant from a decision of the Unemployment Insurance Appeal Board disqualifying claimant from receiving benefits because she voluntarily terminated her employment without good cause (Labor Law, § 593, subd. 1, par. [a]). The board has held that claimant, a fashion coordinator but who most recently had been working as a secretary, in quitting her job as a secretary did not terminate her employment for good cause because she desired to return to a job as a fashion coordinator. On the instant record the board could clearly find that claimant was qualified as a secretary, having worked in that position for about a year and thus that her termination of employment was without good cause (Matter of Levin [ Catherwood ], 22 A.D.2d 286, app. dsmd. 15 N.Y.2d 1034; Matter of Reiger [ Jofan Maintenance Corp.], 17 A.D.2d 269; Matter of Sellers [ Mays, Inc.], 13 A.D.2d 204).
Decision affirmed, without costs.
