I was forced to resign(with immediate effect) from my job, Do I still need to turn in a letter for leaving? "they" (supervisors) said they were going to take care of everything and they didnt want anything from me again. I turned in my badge and left (in my state of shock n not knowing what to think).

- May 18, '12 by Esme12How did they "force you" to resign? By resigning you may not be eligible for unemployment and I am sure that was their tactic. In the future never resign unless you are going willingly on good terms or are quitting as a mutual arrangement with a reference from them.Last edit by Esme12 on May 18, '12
- May 18, '12 by GitanoRNneedless to say, not enough information to provide you with a solid answer, you don't have to go into much detail but it would be helpful to elaborate a bit more.
- I had that option or be terminated for a first mistake of not scanning fluids. No harm caused. Maybe "forced" is not the right word...
- May 18, '12 by zofranThey were going to fire you for not scanning fluids? That seems weird. I forget to scan fluids a lot.......is there more to this story?I would forget about this place and look for another job.
- Yes. I just contacted HR and they had no idea about my case, been 2+weeks already. Apparently i am still showing as an active employee. I don't want to be working anyways but I am concerned about "they" will say to my future employer.
- May 18, '12 by GitanoRNfirst of all i'm sorry that you're having to go through this, however, it seems to me that this facility for whatever reason had made-up their mind to let you go. once again, i don't have the entire picture here, i have never heard of someone making such a fuss over a minor issue. however, when they want to get rid of you it doesn't matter if you're sister teresa. in addition, you stated that hr it self wasn't aware of your status, that leads me to believe that there's more hands in the pie and the plot thickens. needless to say, what bothers me is the tactics taken from management in your situation, if you care to pursue the issue i would demand an investigation since hr still has you and i quote " inactive employee" it's worth trying because is your credibility on the line. on the other hand, i'm sorry you had to learn the lesson of never agreeing to sign anything, without someone in your corner present. as i wish you the very best in all of your future endeavors...aloha~!
- Thank you all for your responses.
I did sign the initial write-up, that stated that "i didnt scan the fluids"- because i really forgot to do so(its part of our safety checks). Nothing else after that, even after i was asked to resign. I figured they just wanted me out.
I plan on calling the DON/NM, to follow-up with this, ie asking what she did exactly, n what she's telling my potential employers? At the moment interviewing for other positions so I hope it doesnt get in the way.
- May 18, '12 by caliotter3Never resign without submitting your own letter of resignation with your signature to be included in your personnel file. They are taking care of everything? They can't sign a letter of resignation for you, so they will place a termination form in your folder and then future prospective employers and the employment department will be told that you were terminated by them, not that you resigned. There is a difference you know.
