Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

A resignation is by its very definition voluntary. Can you explain what youmean when you say that you were "forced" to resign? If you had not resigned, would you have been immediately terminated?

I very much look forward to helping you on this matter.
