Thank you for contacting with your question. I will provide legal information related to your question.


Did you report the abuse to the employer? Did the employer do anything to remedy the situation?

To prove you had good cause connected with the work to quit, and to qualify for benefits, you have to show that the treatment by the coworker was harmful to you either emotionally or physically, that you reported it to the proper chain or authority in your employer and they refused to remedy the situation. But if the co-worker said something once and then never again or apologized and did not reoffend, the commission will not find that you had good cause.
