  • Resignation vs termination Kentucky

    I've been working with a company as a manager for close to 10yrs and this year's been rough with lots of staff turnover. My circumstance is: I quit when my boss started an investigation because I saw it as one more hurdle, now I find out that 3 days after I quit, I was "terminated with cause". I have not talked with anyone since I quit. There were no questions to me about allegations, no investigation conclusions. I know that this is an "at will" employment, I question the ability to "terminate with cause" days after I resigned.

    And the question is?

    If you file for unemployment, your resignation would likely disqualify you from getting it. The employer is attempting to show that you were fired for misconduct, I guess. Bad move on their part.
