Transfer Request Because of An Alleged ''unjust'' Criticism of Job Performance.
In Gioia v. Unemployment Compensation Board of Review, 661 A.2d 34 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1995) the claimant's relationship with his supervisor deteriorated due to what the claimant perceived as unjust criticism of his job performance.
After a requested transfer was denied and a subsequent meeting was held with the employer to discuss matters, the claimant resigned because he felt that there was no satisfactory resolution.
The employer, however, suggested another meeting but the claimant refused although continuing work was available.
The Court upheld the denial of benefits because the claimant failed to show a necessitous and compelling reason for quitting.
