    2 wks notice-forced to quit early (Colorado)

    I put in my 2 weeks notice yesterday. Today, the store manager informed me that today was my last day. He would not admit to firing me-he just wanted me to quit early. I put up quite a fight! However, they paid me for the work already done and for the rest of the day and preceeded to escort me out. This can't be legal, can it? I told him I was quitting on the 24th not today! He forced me to leave. Now, I'm screwed out of the two weeks pay I was counting on and I can't file for unemployment because I was forced quit early. Any help much appreciated!

    I appreciate everyone's advice.
    It looks good when a prospective employer calls to check up on you.

    I might mention that some employers will pay the employee for the two weeks notice they gave if they accept the resignation early but they are normally not required to.

    They do it because it is the right thing to do though I know it can sometimes back-fire on you.

    Colorado: The first week you are eligible for UI benefits is an unpaid waiting week.

    In some states, you would be eligible for unemployment for part of those two weeks. It might be worth a call to the local unemployment office.

    They accepted your resignation early. Nothing illegal about it. Not necessarily how I would handle things but they are well within their rights.
