I did not resign!

Violated posted 3/12/2020 01:27 AM

I finally got a job that would support me! 6 yrs after the divorce, 2 yrs after ex's death, 2 1/2 yrs of community college. Not the job I went to school for. Not the job I applied for.

I had an office job for a yr, and the company closed. I had an interview with this person, he told me about a different opening I should apply for, so I did. Hired me, then he went on a 2 week vacation. A couple of days after he got back, he called me to his office on Tues. and said the feedback he was getting was not good. He would decide at the end of the week. Called me in his office on Fri. as soon as I got there and said this was the hardest part of the job. I said it was okay. I was extremely embarrassed, he said he would tell people goodbye and thanks for me.

That was 2/28. I got my final check in the mail on 3/10 like it should be. Today I got a letter saying since I offered my resignation, it will be processed in lieu of the introductory period termination.

I only worked there a month! Is he trying to not have to pay any unemployment? I wasn't expecting any from that! Humiliated, then add insulting letter... Oh, if I have ?'s about my pay, call HR. Asshole.

Depending on the number of hours you have worked in the last year, I believe that determines if you are eligible for unemployment. However if you are eligible, this may be the company trying to get out of paying unemployment. There are probably more people who have information who will comment.

Sorry you went through that. Some employers can really be dicks.

If you did not submit your resignation in writing - you did not resign.

This is a common tactic by sleazy companies to offer someone the chance to resign by saying it will look better when the real reason is if they lay you off or fire you they can be on the hook for unemployment benefits.

If you did not sign anything indicating that you resigned then I would call HR and tell them that you did not resign and were terminated.

I don't know what state you live in, but in California, if you are terminated, employees are to receive their final paycheck on the spot, and if you voluntarily resign they have 72 hours to pay you. There are penalties if they don't do that. The penalty is a full day's worth for each day you have to wait, up to 30 days. Oregon has a similar law.

Violated, if you have worked a total of 1250 hours in the past 12 months between both jobs, you qualify for unemployment.
Since this was your most recent job and the former company closed, they are on the hook for your unemployment compensation.
I run into this all the time as payroll manager for my company.
You should definitely file.

There is something smelly like rotten fish to me, Violated. You interview for one job, he suggests a different one, goes on vacation, comes back and indicates you aren't living up to expectations. Did you have any indication from other employees that things weren't going well?

He sets you up by indicating the feedback isn't good but won't decide until the end of the week when he pulls the pin on you. At this time he feels compassion for you and will, on your behalf, tell the people who apparently told him the bad feedback goodbye and thanks from you. Sounds like total bullshit to me.

You didn't resign. Go hard on this.

File for unemployment and then it will be up to them to contest it. I dare them.
