JACQUELINE HEARD, APPELLANT,
BOARD OF REVIEW, DEPARTMENT OF LABOR AND CINTAS CORPORATION, RESPONDENTS.
On appeal from Department of Labor, Docket No. 149,223.
NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION
Submitted May 20, 2008
Before Judges Skillman and LeWinn.
Appellant Jacqueline Heard appeals from a final decision of the Board of Review, which affirmed a decision of an Appeal Tribunal that determined appellant was disqualified under N.J.S.A. 43:21-5(a) from receiving unemployment compensation benefits as of January 7, 2007, because she left her employment voluntarily without good cause attributable to the work. We affirm substantially for the reasons set forth in the May 24, 2007 decision of the Appeal Tribunal. A voluntary termination of employment due to a change of residence constitutes a personal reason for leaving employment that disqualifies a claimant from receiving unemployment compensation benefits. Roche v. Bd. of Review, 156 N.J. Super. 63, 65 (App. Div. 1978).
