Does this make any sense? What are their intentions?

My cousin works for a nursing home that will be changing owners as of Monday.
She put in her 2 week notice,so her official last day would have been July 1st.
They informed her that they are not accepting her resignation,that she is actually fired as of June 28th. they told her that if she tries for unemployment,they will fight her on it.
She wasn't expecting unemployment,she QUIT.
Is she now able to actually get unemployment?

  • If she quit, she can't get unemployment. She should have let them fire her, she probably would have gotten unemployment that way. Her letter of resignation would really just be more proof that she quit, so I'm not sure that would help her.

  • If they fire her, yes she can get unemployment. Does she have a copy of her resignation? She gave prove that they released her before her date she was suppose to quit.

  • You usually can't get unemployment if you quit or get fired. They have to lay you off.

    Your cousin needs to find out WHY she is being fired. When she goes looking for another job, that will be a red mark against her.

  • If she wants it, go for it. WI does have very lax unemployment comp rules. If she doesn't need it, then leave it for those who do.

  • They can't fire her for that. Does she have proof they said that?

  • I quit my job in MN due to a family emergency and was given unemployment. Granted, my employer didn't challenge it, but you can get it (depending on the state, of course)

  • They said they didn't want to have the company change hands,have her on the payroll for a few days,and have her quit.
    here in WI,people get unemployment if they were fired unfairly
