REVIEW ON THE RECORD

Upon review of the record in this case, the Board of Appeals adopts the findings of fact and conclusions of law of the Hearing Examiner.

On appeal, the claimant has provided medical evidence that her daughters have been ill. The Board is not affirming the Hearing Examiner's decision because of a lack of medical documents, but the Board concludes that the claimant's situation was not "necessitous or compelling" within the meaning of Section 8-1001(C) of the law.

DECISION

The claimant voluntarily left her employment, without good cause, within the meaning of Section 8-1001 of the Labor and Employment Article. She is disqualified from receiving benefits from the week beginning June 30, 1991 and until she becomes reemployed, earns at least ten times her weekly benefit amount ($1,910), and thereafter becomes unemployed through no fault of her own.

The decision of the Hearing Examiner is affirmed.
