Affirms decision of Review Board that employee was discharged for just cause, denying her unemployment benefits

To access case, press here

Elaine Reynosa appeals the decision of the Review Board of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development (the “Board”) that she was discharged for just cause and the resulting denial of her unemployment benefits. Reynosa claims that there was insubstantial evidence to support the Board’s decision.
Conclusion (slip op. at 4):  There was substantial evidence to support the Board’s decision; therefore, we are compelled to affirm.
Key Analysis (slip op. at 3, 4):  Under our standard of review, we look to determine whether there was probative evidence to support the trial court’s finding that Reynosa stole IPS property and that the theft was against a uniformly enforced rule . . . Reynosa admitted that she took the computer into her home after she found it on a bus. She also acknowledged that she received an IPS employee handbook, which provided that employees are prohibited from taking home school property.
