MATTER CLAIM HELEN WEISS (05/27/69)

SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, THIRD DEPARTMENT


May 27, 1969

IN THE MATTER OF THE CLAIM OF HELEN WEISS, APPELLANT. MARTIN P. CATHERWOOD, AS INDUSTRIAL COMMISSIONER, RESPONDENT

Appeal from a decision of the Unemployment Insurance Appeal Board, filed December 4, 1968, disqualifying claimant from unemployment insurance benefits.

Herlihy, J. P. Reynolds, Aulisi, Cooke and Greenblott, JJ., concur.

Author: Herlihy

 This is an appeal by the claimant from a decision of the Unemployment Insurance Appeal Board, dated December 4, 1968, which affirmed a Referee's decision that the claimant was not available for employment as of August 12, 1968.

From a record which does not permit a proper review, it appears that the investigation which resulted in claimant being declared ineligible for benefits was initiated as the result of a complaint by her former employer and it would further appear that the said employer might have been in some part responsible for the claimant's inability to obtain employment. It is further contended, and not disputed, that the claimant was advised by a claims examiner not to place an "ad" in the newspapers because of statements by her former employer.

The claimant testified as to her personal application to "Investors Funding"; that she was interviewed by a Mr. Warshaw, which was noted in the examiner's report but was not investigated, and which, if found to be true, would not sustain the board's findings.

It may be that the claimant is not entitled to benefits, but on this record there is no substantial evidence to sustain the determination of the board which found: "The two efforts she submitted at an interview on August 23 were allegedly made with people who were no longer working for the employers".

Matter of Cohen (Catherwood) (25 A.D.2d 708) and Matter of Sidlowski (Catherwood) (28 A.D.2d 773) relied upon by respondent are inapplicable to the present case. In Cohen it was established that claimant had made only a few visits to prospective employers. In Sidlowski it was established that several attempts were made to confirm the alleged inquiries for employment, but those attempts were unsuccessful.

[32 A.D.2d 117 Page 119]

    --> The decision should be reversed, and the matter remitted to the board for further proceedings, with costs.

Decision reversed, and matter remitted to the board for further proceedings, with costs.
