I was hired by a company that had a 1 year probation; I was very sick the first 2 weeks, which delayed my orientation. Granted my clinical skills were not current; however. I was informed that I was being offered the option of submitting a resignation 'for personal reasons' or I would be 'probationally dismissed'How can I answer the question; reason for leaving last job on an Unemployment Insurance application ?
State/Country relating to question: Alaska
I'm simply at loss for ideas. There are many factors here; however, bottomline, I need to begin receiving unemployment monies until I can secure another job.
Thank you for your question. I will do my best to assist you with your concerns. If you would like me to clarify my answer, I will be happy to do so.It very much depends on whether or not you were dismissed or you resigned. If you were dismissed, then a lay-off is sufficient although I would suspect that the past employer may attempt to contest it. On the other hand if you resigned, that is considered to be a 'voluntary Termination' on your end, and would bar you from seeking benefits unless and if the past employer agrees not to contest and permits you to file that it was lay-off situation.Good luck.

I guess I wasn't clear. I was told I was being dismissed; however, it was to my better benefit to submit a resignation that I was leaving 'due to personal reasons.
Thank you for your follow-up.
My apologies on misunderstanding. If you reaigned, what the cause, that is what you place as you "reason". It does not matter if you did not expect the employer to accept the tlrrwignation, the fact that you rewitned is what is pertinent, I am afraid.
I provide employment and discrimination law advice in my own practice.
Are you saying I'm to state I resigned as a result of the recommendation of the Employer?
Relist: Incomplete answer.
If the resignation is forced upon you, then you were terminated pursuant to unemployment. If you voluntarily resign, then you dont get unemployment. So it is important that you tell unemployment that the resignation was forced upon you in lieu of being fired.
Thank you! This I understand and will be able to word 'reason for leaving the employment' accurately.
Yes. No issue with that.
I have tried to rate our encounter as highly satisfactory;however it keeps telling me I have already rated it; I did give the first responder a rating; however You have provided the most satisfactory answers.
Thank you very much for caring. I think other experts gets the credit. But its ok. Best wishes.
