The appeals panel affirmed a lower court ruling dismissing the case of Jane Doe who had been a front-office staffer at the XYZ Food Services Corporation for the last 3 years.
In 2013, Jane objected to eating the junk foods manufactured by XYZ, claiming that they made her ill.
She was later fired and applied for unemployment benefits, which XYZ fought, saying she wasn’t eligible.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the appeals panel said Doe had a duty to her company to either eat their foods or stop working there. The ruling said Doe’s failure to comply amounted to job-related misconduct “and thus disqualified her for unemployment benefits.”
Sounds pretty ridiculous, doesn’t it?
