Basically, what happened is my boss told me it was a "layoff." He then changed his mind and asked me to sign a resignation letter. I worked at the company for 6 weeks and 40 hours a week. I just need some advice on what to do. He said that if i sign the resignation letter, I would get paid "2 weeks severance."
I was employed for 9 months at another position before I quit that job for this one.
The last job I had was part-time. Do I still qualify.
How do I file for unemployment in the state of Washington?
I read through the list. Are they going to ask me why I was fired? What if I don't know?
Is there anything he can say that will make me ineligible for unemployment?
Thank you SO much for your advice/aid. It really means the world to me.
