Prunty v. Unemployment Comp. Bd. of Rev.

In Prunty v. Unemployment Comp. Bd. of Rev., Claimant petitioned the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court for review of the Unemployment Compensation (UC) Board of Review’s (UCBR) order finding Claimant ineligible for UC benefits under Section 402.1 of the Unemployment Compensation Law. The issue was whether the Community College of Philadelphia’s (Employer) summer term constituted a “regular term”. Sitting en banc, the Court held that the UCBR properly relied on Comm. Coll. of Allegheny Co. v. Unemployment Comp. Bd. of Rev., 634 A.2d 845 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1993) (CCAC), in determining that Claimant was ineligible for UC benefits under Section 402.1. Moreover, The CCAC factors, in combination with the testimony and Claimant’s exhibit, established that Claimant was aware Employer did not treat its summer term as a “regular” term.
