Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to providing you information in this regard.
If you did not put it in writing to your supervisor/boss then it is not going to be considered a resignation. It is an outbust and nothing more.
I suggest that you should file for unemployment and use your email as evidence that you never gave your resignation.
Now, if you left the office that day or did not report to work the next day, it could be construed that you quit because you were ranting that is what you were doing.
I did not return to work that day or the following day only because my boss had already wrote me back and told me that I had "resigned". In my emails I was asking quite sincerely XXXXX XXXXX could please come back to work and that I absolutely did not resign. Frankly I begged and groveled in those emails to no avail, so I didn't try to go back because I felt certain I was not welcome. A coworker I had spoken with on the phone also indicated to me that my boss had already decided he would not allow me to come back.
Under these circumstances do you still agree that I should be eligible for unemployment benefits?
Well, if there is nothing in those emails that says you resign - then I am a little confused as to why you did not go back to work?
Explain that to me again, briefly, if you can
You left the day of and then wrote an email asking to return even though you never told your supervisor you quit - correct?
Why would you do that and not just return? Did you feel you were fired at that point?
Yes I was very afraid I was fired at that point after blowing up at a coworker that also happened to be my bosses' daughter. I went home crying immediately after the incident and wrote my boss, asking if I could come back or was I fired. He wrote me back and said "I accept your resignation". I begged him to reconsider and insisted I didn't resign, but I didn't hear back from him again, a coworker said I wasnt wanted, and I did not try to go back because I was afraid to.
Ok. So you never resigned. You thought you had been fired
Yes, I suggest you file for Unemployment based on those facts.
