Hi, thanks for submitting your question today. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I’m happy to assist you with your question today.
I do think it's worth a shot to appeal if you can precisely explain to the hearing officer what within the employment was particularly stressful and the stressor was extra ordinary from what is to be expected in the workplace in general. In cases of resignation like yours, the employee has the burden of proof to show that the resignation was for "good cause attributable to the employer" and courts generally interpret this to mean that no objective and rational person would be expected to tolerate the employer's treatment; some examples are sexual harassment, physical violence
etc. So in your case you'd have to be able to prove that the manager was doing something to you so outrageous that an ordinary and reasonable person would essentially have no choice but to quit because the situation was so stressful. If your physician did recommend you resign that will help you, but it does not make or break the entire case, you'll still have to convince the hearing officer that something extraordinary was going on - e.g., sexual harassment, extreme bullying
etc. If you think you can meet that burden. it would probably be worth it for you to apply. Although it sounds like you retained employment again fairly soon thereafter, so you're only going after a small amount of unemployment
anyway. You have nothing to lose by appealing.
