    You can be employed and 'feel' akward, or unemployed and feel 'good.' Get over it!

    I would venture to say, that most hiring managers will understand you not wanting them to contact your current employer.

    Writing the letter in my opinion is very similiar to a resignation.

    I agree with Patty. A "letter of intent to leave" could be considered
    a resignation. I wouldn't submit one.

    Plus, the employer could legally consider this a resignation and choose to accept it immediately and walk you out the door.

    Most reputable HR professionals will not contact your current employer if you request them not to; they understand that. But legally, they could.

    I see absolutely NO upside in submitting this "letter of intent". When you find your new job, THEN submit your resignation.

    You can always file. Whether you will get it or not will be up to the state. I'd say your chances are pretty good but as DAW puts it, the state does not care even a little bit what I think.

    Letter of intent to leave Michigan

    I am looking for a new job after being at my current place of employment for over 10 years. I feel it would be a little strange to tell hiring managers during an interview that they cannot contact my boss. I'm wondering if I write a formal letter of my intent to leave, saying that I will stay until I find a new job [/U]and then give the proper 2 weeks notice, if they decide to let me go, can I claim unemployment?
