J. Hail v. WCAB (City of Philadelphia) outlines a case in which the Claimant was found to have voluntarily retired from the work force and benefits were suspended. The Claimant took a service based pension and moved to a trailer park. The WCJ found the Claimant did not folow through in good faith on job development because he failed to look for jobs on his own, although he did follow-up on all the jobs referred and was not offered employment. It is an unpublished opinion, which is appropriate because these cases are fact specific.
