Back in June 2012, I wrote a blog post about the Court of Appeal’s decision in Paratransit, Inc. v. Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board, 206 Cal. App. 4th 1312 (2012). In Paratransit, the California Court of Appeal held that an employee’s refusal to sign a performance review or disciplinary action form constituted “misconduct” justifying the denial of unemployment insurance benefits under Section 1256 of the Unemployment Insurance Code.
Well…yesterday the CA Supreme Court voted 7-0 to grant review of the case. Opening briefs are now due by December 26, 2012. I will keep you posted on the CA Supreme Court case, as it develops. In the meantime, you can find case information here on the CA Supreme Court’s website.
