DENISE B. RENZO, APPELLANT,
BOARD OF REVIEW AND COLUMBIA BANK, RESPONDENTS.
On appeal from the Board of Review, Department of Labor, 124,594.
NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION
Submitted February 5, 2008
Before Judge Fuentes and Grall.
Appellant Denise B. Renzo appeals from the decision of the Board of Review denying her request for unemployment benefits. N.J.S.A. 43:21-5(a) provides that a person is ineligible for unemployment benefits if he or she leaves work voluntarily and not for good cause attributable to the work. Appellant was injured on the job and was out of work on workers' compensation for eleven months. She did not return. Instead, while she was still receiving workers' compensation benefits, she advised her employer that she was going to resign. She testified at the hearing before the Appeal Tribunal that she left to move to Florida because of her husband's health and also because of her own. There was no evidence that she would not have been able to return to work.
We affirm the decision of the Board of Review.
