I have excessive absences and the last occurence, due to my son being sick, would have been the call-in that would have gotten me fired, if my supervisor was not on vacation. She gets back in 1 week and I was wondering if I should just go ahead and put in my resignation instead of waiting to be fired so that I don’t have that black mark on my record. And if I do that can I still get unemployment benefits.
Absolutely NOT!! not if you need to collect unemployment because a child’s illness may be good cause to miss work, therefore not good cause to discharge someone .. so you have to decide which is more important .. and unblemished resume .. or benefits.
