An alien worker who was legally in this country, but whose work authorization had expired and was pending renewal, was not entitled to partial unemployment benefits, the Commonwealth Court has determined.
In Jimoh v. Unemployment Compensation Board of Review, PICS Case No. 06-0927 (Pa. Commw. July 6, 2006) Cohn Jubelirer, J. (10 pages), the court ruled that it was of no moment that the Unemployment Compensation Board of Review did not challenge claimant Tajudeen A. Jimoh’s receipt of benefits in 2003, when he similarly lacked work authorization. The court therefore affirmed the board’s 2005 decision denying partial unemployment benefits.
