Can employer let me go but say I resigned because I need to leave work early for nursing school
Employer going to have me work as a temp until they can hire someone to replace me - they will not let me leave early 4 days a week to attend nursing school. However, they are saying that for unemployment I am resigning - how can that be if they are letting me go - hiring me as a temp until they find someone - then letting me go again. Will I be able to collect unemployment after they let me go from temp position.
Quite frankly, I am confused as to what has happened here.
First, an employer is not required to let you leave work early to attend school and quitting work to attend school is almost always disqualifying, but it sounds like you asked the employer if you could leave work early
for school and they fired you for asking. That is something I would argue as a discharge without good cause .. unless you gave notice to quit.
Secondly, it sounds like after terminating your employment (with benefits?) they then said they would keep you on as a temporary worker until .. you start attending school or they hire someone to replace you.
Is this what happened? Karen, details matter, especially, in Florida where they are denying claims .. just because they think they may get away with it when claimants don't know to appeal.
Did you ever tender a resignation letter .. after they decided not to let you leave early for school?
