Holding: 
Reversed.
(Court opinion corrected 1/30/13.) IDES properly denied Plaintiff unemployment benefits. Respondent testified that she did not contact employer to inform them that she was terminating her employment, but she simply left her job. Record contains no evidence that Plaintiff ever attempted to work with employer to request an accommodation. Board's finding that Plaintiff voluntarily left her employment without good cause attributable to employer is not clearly erroneous.(LAMPKIN and HALL, concurring.)
