I just quit my nanny/ personal assistant job, as after a new

Customer Question

I just quit my nanny/ personal assistant job, as after a new hire I recommended was let go after only a week and one day on the job. ( she is also a personal friend). I left because right before maybe Wednesday my boss's attitudes towards me changed drastically, conversations were hidden, she was questioning how much she could trust me in passive aggressive ways things were adding up and I know how she let others go and pushed them out so I was in fear for my job security. And liability, I was noticing the nanny cameras unplugged, My time card was altered, and then my long in password ***** changed. I tried to talk with the about it but then my sister got sick and I had to leave to get her back in the hospital again. I knew any time I would need to take was going to give her reason to let me go, and I Honestly am a strong person and can emotionally put up with a lot but the thought of going back to the drama and emotion was making me sick. I put in my letter of resignation effective immediately as to just break ties and walk away. I had to block her number as I was trying to be professionally as I could and just let her know I would be sending back the house key and her moms book. She brought up a non issue of old daily logs (i.e. when he pooped and ate) that she insists I took out of the notebook and still had. I don't have them. I want to k now how I can file for unemployment. I work at the house alone the only person who knows what I am went through with her is the other woman she fired and as I explained we are friends. Professional in all aspects but friends. Should I be worried. I can't Log in any more to get prof of my Time cards. I know of some labor issues like overtime and calling out side of work hours on work topic went unpaid and or put on a day I was really only working a half day. I don't want to make this a big deal she's a small business but I feel really attacked. I just don't know if ill get my unemployment. I was a strong worker and I always worked hard never had a write up. I also never had a review or a working contract returned to me signed. I just don't know my rights here.
