Jenkins applied for unemployment benefits and was denied by the state Dept. of Employment and Economic Development, which was upheld by the Court of Appeals. She appealed.
On appeal, the Supreme Court of Minnesota found that Jenkins could not be expected to report for work under the circumstances, and thus could not be discharged from her job due to misconduct that rendered her ineligible for unemployment benefits. The Court reversed the decision below. See: Jenkins v. Minn. Dept. of Employment and Economic Development, 721 N.W.2d 286 (Minn., 2006).
