I believe resigning voluntarily or involuntarily will get your claim denied. i wonder if that's why they wanted you to resign - so they wouldn't have to pay?
Hello,I believe that if you had GOOD cause to resign that you could still be considered for unemployment.If your performance is poor and they want you to correct or leave and you just leave - that would not be a good reason.If the company was relocating to another state that could potentially be a good reason.Hope this helps!Karen
This morning when I got to work my boss pulled me aside and asked me to sign a form saying that if I came in late one more time in the next 90 days I would be terminated. I've never had an attendance problem and I've never had a verbal or written warning about my attendance.I refused to sign the letter and 5 minutes later he pulled me aside along with HR to let me know I was terminated.Am I able to collect unemployment benefits?thanks
Resigning usually means your going to get denied for unemployment benefits
If you quit you're job you typically shouldn't get unemployment. But there are exceptions. I suggest filing and see what happens.
Depends on your definition of forced to resign - can you give more details?

Go to your library and check out a book on unemployment law. You'll find that resigning, quitting, getting fired, etc. do not necessarily preclude you from getting UI Benefits. There are specific instances in which it's OK to resign (briefly, hostile work environment, change of job description, etc.), though admittedly it will be more of a battle than if you were just laid off. One common misconception is that the employer "pays" for your unemployment. This is not exactly true. Employers pay into a tax fund every year that is used to go towards state unemployment regardless of whether their employees file and get paid on claims. Granted, if they have a large number of people filing for claims and getting them, the percentage they have to pay could increase slightly, but they don't "pay" your personal unemployment.Hope this helps!

my husband was forced to resigned becasue one of his crew members stole some wood. My husband was the supervisor that day and was unloading the truck. They blamed him for the lost and said if he was supervising the person more closely this would not have happen. He was given a choice to be fired or resigned. He resigned because he did not want his work history to reflect poor supervision due to that is his profession management. Can he get unemployement. Also that peron that stole the wood is still employed with the company. This person did not get fired becasue he is thier top sales employee
I have been working for the school system for 20 years. I was to resign by them creating a bad rapsheet on me. I felt so discriminated by six staff and was welcome there at the workplace. They treated me unfairly that it causes me to have a heavy load of depression. Doctor recommonded to stay home for one month and to return to work after recooperation. I was told by the human resource that if did not return to work, my job word be terminated. Will I qualify for unemployment if I quit my job because of the unequal employment at work and they want me out either way?

I work at an adult store (yes that kind) and I am dealing with tons of on the job stressors and have caused me to have anixety attacks. I was attacked on public transpo on my way home from work forcing me to drive on suspended liscense. Needless to say I was pulled over and commuter car which was purchased specifically for work is gone. I had a panic attack on my commute home which was on the same route on public transpo. The other transpo option would make my commute about 3 hours total, my job is about 20 miles from my home. If I quit my job in a mutual agreement with my boss can I draw unemployment? My therapist will give me the ok. I tried going back to work after the incident and was fine because I was driving but have had three panic attacks since Friday this is Sunday morning.
Same commenter, also I have seen the guys that attacked me on public transpo near my job and fear for my safety...I was fine until I saw them at which time I told my boss I wanted to quit she convinced me to stay and I told her if I cannot drive there I cannot come what should I say?

I hate it when you get hired for F/T and when you start working your only working P/T -1/2 dayyou mention youll have to look for more hours at another job on your days off and your current job takes it personal that you want to work 2 places becouse they expected to use you for an on-call employee, and end up harrassing you and setting you up to make you want to quit.so they dont have to pay for unemployment and their mad that you noticed you had P/T instead of F/T like they promised.a lot of businesses need to grow up or get a wake up call from BBB.

I was fired from a job 10 years ago for poor performance. I was denied unemployment because I had a lot of write ups. I have been told you can collect as long as you don't quit your job or commit a crimanal act. I was still denied. When I started the company I knew I wouldn't last, at first the manager wanted me to stay, but it was the same manager that fired me.
I wanted to know if you can collect unemployment if you resign from your job due to no transportation?
Last Friday, my wife was let go (not told she was fired) by the law firm she worked for but told "she did an excellent job and was a great asset to the firm." The senior partner told her that they were hiring a more qualified person to fulfill her duties. She was offered a weeks pay if she signed some paperwork agreeing to not file for unemployment. What's that suppose to mean? She didn't sign the paper and she is planning on going to file for unemployment...But seriously, why would he give her that offer?
I have been with my current employer for more than 5 years. During this time i got no raise, no health benefits, no paid vacations, nothing. I discussed the current issue with my employer about 2 months ago, since then they have been on my case...micromanaging me, even told me if i don't like how everything is operated here that i should resign. Before i brought up the talk of raise, i was the best employee they had, ever since i spoke up, everyday they bring up issues to show my poor performance.What should i do? would i qualify for unemployment? I am the only source of income in my family and i just can't deal with the issues at work anymore.Also i have noticed and heard few rumors about the company and its people that kind of makes me feel not safe working there. i think they might be involved with fraud but not sure...i want to quit.can i get benefits??
My mom who is 70 yrs old, came back from her vacation and was told by her employer that her full time job will be desolved. She was given a choice to be work as a part-timer. She did not take the part-time position and pretty much walked out from her employer. Since she is elegible to apply for Medicare Insurance because of her age, Social Security Office is requesting for the employers release paper work. She has tried so many times to send the paper from her old employer and she never received any response. Now that she sent again the paper certified mail, they did response and said that she is still employed by them but never work for them over a year. Can her old employer hold her back for not receiving Medicare Coverage. Lately, she been getting sick more often and needs medication.
I am working in fear and having chest pain, yesterday I was pulled aside and coach regard some calls (work in a Call Center, I'm a temp under a contract) it seems that handling upset customers is something that I can not handle well, and today I just couldn't open my PC to start my day at work, my heart was going so fast and I felt some sharp chest pain, I went to my boss and let him know that I could not work and came home, I am planning to see a doctor tomorrow. I do have a claim open from my previous employer (which I was layoff in May 2010) I was wondering because of my medical condition and a letter from a doctor could I ever be able to collect and open my previous claim?
I worked at a hospital since 4/2008 on December 2008 I am asked by my supervisor to train an African American woman I did it with pleasure. On April 2009 she had an attitude towardaccusing me I should learn to talk to people, just beacuse I kindly asked her to pull a copy of the document she had billed. Since she did not make a copy she accused me of having an attitude with her to the supervisor. The woman would always say but she told me to do so when something went wrong but when something went right she would claim she did it on her own. My supervisor would call to my attention if I was getting along with my trainee I would says why do you ask? Is she contending against me??? Supervisor would say no. This behavior pattern started once the trainee felt confident after beeing trained. My supervisor fired me under the pretense of retaliating against the trainee. My supervisor and the financial manager wrote me up without previous oral nor verbal warning and fired me. Accused me of referring to the African American woman a chocolate chip cookie. On January 6,2010 The supervisor calls into a meeting the African American woman and I. In front of the supervisorI asked the African American woman "did I ever called you a chocolate chip cookie?" she asnwers no it was the ladies from across the other side across the floor" I said to my supervisor you see I never called the African American woman the chocolate chip of the office. It was the white ladies from across the floor. On January 7,2010 I was fired under those grounds. I appealed with equal employment offfice as a result of wrongful dismissal since I couldn't afford a lawyer. I was not allowed to collect unemployment accused of inappropriate behavior. The EEOCC claimed to have thoroughly investigated and confirmed that I had called the African american woman a chocolate chip cookie when I actually didn't My only hope is that God is the only one that takes care of his children from injustice. In my current job I have been asked again to train an employee for Masshealth I fear this is going to happen to me again train and get fired. Since I started this job this person I am supposed to train has never made feel at ease and most the employees criticize my food,the way I dress, everything is negative about me. I know my current supervisor is getting ready to fire me. I have always asked her when am I going to learn to bill Medicare either says first you train her then you will train for Medicare. I know this will not happen. I dont feel confident.I have been having nightmares of being fired. What should I do???

I have a question about the labor laws & if there are more than 1 persons in the worl place that knowlingly knows about illegal activities & work for a non profit org. what should our actions be? We do not approve of the criminal activities and do not what to be part of them or be involved in an investigation when it happens. They do not have any reason to fire any of the individuals involved, but the individuals are VERY uncomfrotable with the working conditions and fear they may be caught up in something they have no involvment in. To come fourth with the info. is as well scary, because the individuals are afraid of retaliation!!!!!

I had a unemployment hearing almost a week ago. I quit my job as a secretary/ hr assitant. My "just cause" was becuase other employees were using vile and vulgar language at me during my last year of employment. they were very abusive, verbally, and it mde me really nervouse. Serveral times I told my manager, the HR manger, about theses situations and she did not intervene or attempt to resolve these problems. She would state ways to hepl me but she never did them. The a judicator asked me during the telephone interview if I had ever called the police becuase I said I ws nervous and I said no. I never did becuase I needed my job. He also asked why I stayed for so long putting up with this conflict an dI responded I was hopeful that my boss would help me and I needed my job. But my position became intolerable with the abuse coming my way constantly with no effort from my boss to help me. UI is withholding my benefits becuase UI and paralegals are deliberating if I quit for just caus.

i was forced to resign or i will lose my cna license will i get unemployment
I have been an RN for 30 years.I worked in Sales and Marketing for 3 1/2 months at this last job. My boss was and is a bully..I was a salaried employee and my boss expected me to work almost every Sunday. I was not oriented to my position and my boss's job description stated that she was supposed to "ride a long with me at least once a month". She never did. She would text me every am...sometimes as early as 3am, asking me what my plans were for the day. I covered 3 states, had no marketing budget. This supervisor has no medical degree whatsoever and would demand that I admit patients to a program(Inpatient Rehab), even when the patient was medically unstable..in my clinical assessment of patient. On February 17th, she text me and told me to be in her office @ 3:30pm that afternoon. She had 3 pages of what she called a written warning. All of the content of the"write up" were non-truths. I had unrealistic, unattainable marketing goals. I was forced to use my own computer and had to use my personal cell phone the majority of the time because the phone I was given to use by this company did not work the majority of the time. She constantly harassed me. She knew I had an anxiety disorder and Rheumatoid Arthritis when I was hired..both were controlled with medication when I went to work for this company. She forced me to resign. It was a hostile work environment..not just for me, but other employees she supervised and still does as these employees still call me and tell me how they are still being treated. I stood up to her for bullying me and other employees. Before I was forced to resign, I was not able to sleep, eat and worked 12-14 hours a day and still could not get all of the work done that she expected of me. I have a great work history, but now have been turned down by at least 4 jobs I have applied for. I feel that I am eligible for unemployment because she forced me out. I hung on to this job as long as I could. Now I have no health benefits for myself nor my husband(he is self employed). I did go to the EEOC and register a complaint. When the EEOC employee read what this boss called a "write up", his response was that it was not a write up, it was a Performance Improvement Plan(PIP).I am still experiencing anxiety. I do not want to leave my house. She totally caused my health to worsen my all of the stress she unfairly placed me under. The doctors always complimented me on what a good job I was doing and so did the staff on the units where I admitted patients to. I brought in referrals and was also expected to do the admission on my computer and fax all the paperwork in after I would drive sometimes 2 hours one way to a hospital to see a patient.In my 30 years of nursing, I have never been subjected to such stress and unprofessional behavior. She was loud, cursed a lot during our weekly meetings...I could go on and on. I still wake up at 3 or 4am with panic, bad dreams and have to shake myself out of it, so to speak because I am still as I said having increased anxiety, having nightmares about having to get up and face this bully again. I am going to the labor board and talk to a counselor because I feel that I cannot get a job because she is giving me bad references, which is illegal. I filed a defamation of my character and also disability claim due to all of the undue stress she placed on me to force me to resign. Any comments or thoughts would be helpful. I am still thinking about getting an attorney for all of this forced resignation. I did not give a 2 week notice. She told me to leave that day..although she would not put it in writing. I offered to give a 2 week notice, but she verbally told me to leave right after what she called a "write up". Thanks for reading this and letting me vent.
I was working and got into a car accident. I called my boss and he said if I couldnt make it back in 2 weeks he would have to let me go. I BROKE MY BACK. Although he did say I could re-apply when I get on my feet. Is that even legal? Anyway I did not get fired, he just said he would have to let me go for now. This is a very emotional stressfull time. My Insurance was not going to kick in untell July. So...........I had none when in the accident. Sincerly.Sean
