I qualify for benefits at the highest amount of

I qualify for benefits at the highest amount of approximately 1720 per month as per NYS Unemployment and they said if I accept severance or quit that I can apply for the unemployment insurance afterwards even if I resign? The reasons given were if the job resources did not allow me to be able to get the job done that the claims could be reopened after the severance. Also that the offer of severance to resign may not be legal?

Gave back my computer and company credit cards this morning.

Hello,So gave back my computer and company credit cards this morning. I am being pressed in the following manner, either resign and receive two weeks severance, or be fired and possibility not receive the severance, clearly the reason they are pushing for the severance is simply for the fact that they do not want to have their premiums rise for a claim to pay unemployment insurance.I may or may not be eligible since I have only been employed for less than three months; however, I have never made a claim before and may have surplus from my previous employer represented approximately 400 per week or 1600 a month, I may be out of work for 2-3 months 3 months = $4800 not sure yet 2 weeks pay represents net of approximately 2300.00.Unemployment insurance will only talk to you during certain days of the week based upon your last name, for me the day is Tuesday. As of now I have left the firm , status in the air. I am planning to reach out to my clients and connections this afternoon, any issues with that?Also there is a trade show tomorrow which was paid for on the company credit car and I made my supervisor aware, he said you can go just not under the company name? I would think they would have wanted to attend?Do I say the following:Lou,Thank you for taking the time today to wrap up my employment with SO . I am not able to quantify coverage from the department of labor until Tuesday when they will speak with claimants based upon last name M is the Tuesday window(###) ###-####is the number to confirm the enclosed, until I speak to the agent I will not know what amount.Based upon the offer from you /SourceOne my understanding is that two weeks of severance is being offered if I resign, by resigning I extinguish my rights to unemployment insurance, when we discussed the idea of being laid off you brought to my attention the two weeks of severance may not be available.I do understand that filing unemployment insurance could possibly raise the insurance premiums cost. Perhaps a better solution would be to provide additional severance / medical insurance coverage for a longer period of time?I seek to wrap up my business relationship in an amiable manner. Please let me know your thoughts.Thank you-

My daughter has been accepted to nursing school to start in July. The school strongly suggest the student do not have employment because the odds of their success reduces considerably if they work. She has given her employer notice to be effective the first week in July. She starts school the following week. Her employer has started reducing her hours because she is leaving. Can an employer go ahead and separate an associate before the date of their notice? If so, is the employee still eligible to draw unemployment benefits provided they were not separated for any reason other than that they had made known their intention to leave?
