Author: Per Curiam
[ 61 Pa. Commw. Page 619]
The appellant, an unemployment compensation claimant, contends that the compensation authorities erred in denying her compensation on the ground that she had voluntarily quit her employment as a school cafeteria worker without necessitous and compelling cause. The reason given by the claimant for quitting her work was that cold water affected her condition of arthritis. At the referee's hearing, her school district employer adduced substantial evidence in the form of testimony of school supervisors that there was cafeteria work not involving having her hands in cold water to which the claimant could have been assigned if she had asked for other work. An unemployment compensation claimant who assigns health as a reason for quitting her employment is required to show, inter alia, that she requested her employer for other work which would be within her limitations.
