60 YEARS AGO.
FREQUENT OVERINDULGENCE in liquor outside working hours, which results in greatly reduced efficiency at work, constitutes misconduct connected with employment, the Illinois Division of Placement and Unemployment Compensation ruled recently.
Under the state job insurance law, a worker discharged for misconduct in connection with his work may be penalized by having his benefits delayed for as long as six weeks. The decision was given in the case of a young foundry worker who because of repeated nights of overindulgence in liquor could produce only about one-third of the normal amount of work. When the worker was discharged, he filed a claim for benefits which was challenged by his former employer.
