What Happens If You Quit Your Job After the Employer Refused Your Request to Fire You ?

In Oller v. Unemployment Compensation Board of Review, 57 Pa. Commw. 459, 426 A.2d 741 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1981) the claimant had complained to her employer about the work performance of a subordinate employee and requested that she be discharged. The employer refused, and the claimant resigned even though continuing work was available to her. The denial of benefits was affirmed because the claimant failed to act reasonably to maintain her employment relationship; she refused to meet with the employer and the subordinate to address her concerns.
