I work for the state of California and I am thinking about

This answer was rated:

I work for the state of California and I am thinking about applying for another state position. I told my employers I was looking for a position that better suits my skills and personality type. The responded with an end date and made me sign something agreeing that I would not have anymore unplanned absences and that I would perform all the duties of the job. Any unplanned absences or failure to perform the duties of the position will get me terminated. Is this an unfavorable circumstance? The new position is asking if I've ever resigned because of an unfavorable circumstance. Also, the new position is under the same HR department and I'm afraid they will have access to the information.

Unfavorable circumstance is where some misconduct or violation of company practices occurred and you resigned rather than get fired, or face the possibility of being terminated. Many times employees rather have a termination on their record simply quit. They have effectively quit under unfavorable circumstance.

 

Violating the terms now in your employment would be misconduct, and if you resigned that would be unfavorable circumstances.

So, the paper I signed is like a warning, and as long as I do not violate the terms now, I am ok? I intend to do what I have agreed to so that I am not terminated.


 


 

It is similar to a warning. What it is are the new terms of your employment agreement. Just like a dress code might be, fighting, or other rules which are labeled as conditions of employment.
