Salt Lake City Corp. v. Department of Employment Security
In Salt Lake City Corp. v. Department of Employment Security, 657 P.2d 1312, (Utah 1982), the Court acknowledged the Commission's latitude in affirming its award of unemployment benefits to a state employee who had voluntarily left her job.
The statute at issue in that case provided that unemployment benefits were generally unavailable when employees voluntarily quit, but allowed the Commission to award benefits when required by "equity and good conscience." Id. at 1317.
