Unemployment Compensation/TRA case -- Glover v. UCBR

From: Don Marritz, MidPenn Legal Services

Decision: http://www.courts.state.pa.us/OpPosting/CWealth/out/924CD04_5-13-05.pdf

Summary: A few days after the claimant started TRA training, he began working two part-time jobs, in which he earned a total of about $175 per week, $6.00/week more than his partial benefit credit.

Claimant's application for TRA benefits was denied, based on a finding that he had not "exhausted all rights to any " UC insurance benefits. The Board decided that he would be eligible for regular state UC benefits, based on his earnings from his part-time jobs, should he apply for them.

The Court upheld the UCBR, holding that the claimant was "entitled" to state UC benefits and thus did not satisfy the exhaustion requirement under the TRA, 19 USC 2291(a)(3)(B
