  • Unemployment compensation - termination or resignation? Florida

    If an employee quits, providing a letter of resignation, and giving two weeks' notice - but the employer decides it does not want the employee to work out the two weeks and tells the employee they should leave the same day, is that considered a resignation or a firing from an unemployment compensation standpoint?

    Thanks for any help.

    From the employer's viewpoint, the resignation was accepted immediately. From the UC Division's viewpoint, the employee was involuntarily terminated and likely is entitled to UC benefits for that two week period, less any waiting period.

      Fl. has a 1 wk. waiting period for unemployment ins. benefits.
