Burby v. Fraser Papers, Inc.

Summary:  The Appellate Division panel found Hearing Officer Pelletier did not err by concluding the employee had good and reasonable cause to refuse a bona fide offer of reasonable employment, even though the reason given was that he felt the work would negatively affect his non-work-related psychological condition. The panel found that under 39-A M.R.S.A. § 214(1)(A), the “good and reasonable cause” to refuse a bona fide offer of employment can be non-work-related.
