stoppage of work


stoppage of work
A cessation of the work and operations in a place of employment. The phrase, as used in the amended provision of the Unemployment Compensation Act disqualifying an employee for benefits for unemployment due to a stoppage of work existing because of a labor dispute in the establishment in which he is or was last employed, refers to the work and operations of the employer's establishment and not to the work of the individual employee, and does not operate to disqualify employees who participate in a strike which does not result in the stoppage of the employers' work. Lawrence Baking Co. v Unemployment Comp. Com. 308 Mich 198, 13 NW2d 260, 154 ALR 660. See strike.
