New York. My employer knew I was intending to attend graduate school. I gave notice that I would resign in August--a written resignation that my supervisor accepted in the presence of myself and the HR manager. Two days later, my supervisor tried to force me to sign a form saying I had resigned as of that day. I refused to sign it. She said I had still resigned as of that moment. I told her no, she was terminating me. She said, no, I had just resigned. The next day, I showed up for work, and security escorted me off the grounds. Now my employer has denied me unemployment because they insist I resigned. Can I sue them for the money and benefits I would have had had they allowed me to resign on the date that they originally accepted?



Your employer did not deny you unemployment benefits, the Unemployment Compensation Commission did based on your employer telling them that you were a voluntary quit. File an appeal with the Unemployment Compensation Commission and explain to them that you were forced to leave earlier than you had planned on doing so. You might want to take an attorney with you for this appeal.
