Voluntary Quit VQ 270 - Reason for Decision

Irresistible Compulsion to Use or Consume Intoxicants

I. DISQUALIFICATION>

Effective January 1, 2006, Assembly Bill 1577 (Chapter 152, Statutes of 2005) renumbered UI Code Section 1256.5 for separations due to the use of Intoxicants (TOX) to 1256.4. Therefore, any separations involving a TOX issue when the last date worked is before January 1, 2006, are to be adjudicated under the former UI Code Section 1256.5. Separations involving a TOX issue when the last date worked is on or after January 1, 2006, are to be adjudicated under UI Code Section 1256.4. No provisions of the law were changed other than the renumbering of the Code Section.
