Thank you for your question.
I am sorry to hear that you were terminated. Were you given reason for the early termination? In your notice to them, did you state that you will resign by the 30th? Were you a contractual employee for them?
I am a SCEP employee which is a student employee and no they did not state why I was terminated as of that date.
Thank you for your follow-up, Eunice.
Based on my review of SCEP guidelines, there is no requirement that they keep you employed. Having said that, you can potentially pursue them for lost wages if you did not have a periodic set of employment, meaning that your employment was not set to expire on the date that you were given as termination. That would not invalidate their termination, but you could pursue them for the wages you would have lost from the date of termination to you resignation date.
