UC - willful misconduct - employer rule - good cause for violation

Bell Socialization Services v. UCBR – Cmwlth. Court – August 29, 2013

Claimant had good cause for violating Employer’s work rule requiring that she have reliable transportation, because she did not have sufficient income to repair or replace her vehicle.  Her own vehicle broke down, and her mother's became inoperable because of an accdent.   She earned only $9.00/hour and had a wage garnishment.  Claimant acted justifiably in light of all of the circumstances.
