California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Hello and thank you for your question today
Are you online with me?
Welcome to the chat
To receive unemployment, you would need to show that you lost your job through no fault of your own. Thus, if you had been given an action plan and were terminated you would absolutely receive unemployment even if you did not meet expectations.
Because you gave 30 day notice, however, if you do not rescind this notice, then receiving unemployment will be very difficult.
So did I ruin my chance or getting unemployment by giving them my resignation rather than signing their plan?
The reason behind this is that the CA EDD finds that quitting without good cause does not constitute loosing your job through no fault of your own.
Are you still working there?
If yes, then you need to send something, in writing, which rescinds your resignation.
Yes, I feel like I quit under duress, either sign or be fired, so I gave resignation to give me 30 days
preferably certified return receipt
I did send something trying to rescind and they did not accept it
though it can be done in email, etc. as long as you make sure you have it in writing for EDD when your employer fights it
I am actually still working their for another 3 days
you should rescind your resignation as soon as possible
if they do not accept, then you have a strong argument that you should receive unemployment benefits
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX do that
not a problem
Does that fully answer your question?
Yes, thank you
