  • resignation or termination in MI?


    On Thursday I gave my employer my two weeks notice (they were actually aware that I was leaving for some time, but I wanted to make it official and submitted my letter of resignation). On Friday I arrived at work and was ushered into the HR office where I found my personal belongings in a box and my manager told the HR person to talk to me and then let me out of the building and I was not allowed back in.
    The company is now claiming that I resigned from my position and that I should not receive compensation for my last two weeks, but they are also claiming that they did not terminate me and that I should not be allowed to collect unemployment. Is this correct? I never agreed to this Friday being my last day. The only thing they have in writing from me is my letter of resignation with a date two weeks from now. At no point during my meeting with HR did I agree that this Friday should be my last day.
    Can they do this? Or should I be able to at least get unemployment for the two weeks up until my actual date of resignation?

    It is very common for employers to let employees go as soon as they give their notice of resignation.

    As far as unemployment, go ahead and file - it can't hurt. But a condition of unemployment benefits is that you are seeking work full time and are able and willing to work.

    Best wishes.
