Re: Fired After Asking for Thirty Days Off, HR Claims I Quit
and she was right.
. She stated that if I do not return to work then I am quitting voluntarily.
Probably not. Usually when you quit without good cause, you are ineligible for unemployment ibenefits. I would still file but don't be surprised if they say you are disqualified.
This whole thing is terrible and I just want to know if I can get my unemployment and begin looking for work.
and if they did not give you permission to take the time off, yes, it would be job abandonment which again, generally disqualifies you for unemployment benefits.
Also she said I can have my job back but when I go on my trip it is job abandonment and at time I am no longer employed. I don't feel that is appropriate. So I am fired either way? Why even bring me back?
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
