Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
I was tricked, and treated unethically. I won't be able to file unemployment, as my director wanted to let me go without having a job offer. She knows I live from paycheck to paycheck at this current job, and am financially struggling. If I quit and don't get another job offer, I won't have anything.
I work for a mental health agency where you only get paid for each client you see. My director transferred most of my caseload right away, which left me in a position where I won't get paid. I felt as if I had no choice, but to resign. She kept pushing "You should do this as soon as possible" when I said I would rather wait and resign a month later.
