Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Department, New York.

IN RE: the Claim of Barbara R. FRANKEL, Appellant. John E. Sweeney, as Commissioner of Labor, Respondent.

Decided: February 27, 1997

Before MERCURE, J.P., and CREW, CASEY, YESAWICH and CARPINELLO, JJ. Barbara R. Frankel, New York City, appellant in person. Dennis C. Vacco, Attorney General (Steven S. Park, of counsel), New York City, for respondent.

Appeal from a decision of the Unemployment Insurance Appeal Board, filed March 22, 1996, which, inter alia, ruled that claimant was disqualified from receiving unemployment insurance benefits because she voluntarily left her employment without good cause.

 Claimant resigned her position as a medical technician citing a litany of grievances, including the employer's elimination of health insurance coverage and his closing of a pension and profit sharing plan.   The Unemployment Insurance Appeal Board subsequently ruled that claimant had left her employment without good cause.   We affirm.   Our review of the record discloses that claimant continued to report to work despite harboring such grievances, thereby waiving her right to assert them as compelling reasons to resign (see, Matter of Hogan [Schenectady Discount Corp.-Levine], 50 A.D.2d 650, 374 N.Y.S.2d 457).   In any event, claimant's dissatisfaction with her job conditions did not constitute good cause for leaving her employment (see, e.g., Matter of Brabson [Hudacs], 195 A.D.2d 681, 599 N.Y.S.2d 726;  Matter of Wigutow [Roberts], 138 A.D.2d 817, 526 N.Y.S.2d 45).

ORDERED that the decision is affirmed, without costs.
