What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? North Carolina
My boss said we needed some face time and asked me to fly to meet him. He wanted to know what my plan was for the rest of the year to make my quota. I started to tell him and he interrupted and said "this isn't going to work out".
He said that he was going to spare my feelings and put out an email that I want to spend more time with my family. Since I had a significant amount of money tied up in commissions that were stilled owed to me from 2009 (I was embarrassed/mortified since I had never been fired before) I went along with it. He put the email out 2 minutes after our meeting before I could even get out of the building to go back to the airport. I never approved the email that was sent out and I never gave a letter of resignation. I also wasn't asked to sign separation papers (which I have done for every other company that I resigned from).
My last day was suppose to be in Sept but he asked that I stay on until Oct due to a client needing my expertise. I put in an email that I felt awkward since I was terminated and now asked to stay an additional 6 weeks. Since I had no other job lined up and still hadn't received my commissions I agreed. I have be receiving unemployment benefits since November but now I have a hearing this month since they are appealing.
Are my benefits likely to be revoked from this hearing?
