Notice pf Proposed Termination

I am a San Bernardino County employee for the last 4.5 years. I have been served a "notice of Termination" They have given me two choices, meet face to face with the elected official who has proposed the termination and if terminated loose my unemployment benefits, or resign and take my unemployment benefits. I really feel i need to explain my case but they have put me in a no win situation. my union has been very little help.

Thank you, Mike

The County does not control whether or not you get unemployment benefits. I suggest that you consult with an employment lawyer before deciding what to do.

Hi Mike,

Usually, resignation from a job means that you cannot get unemployment benefits. So the choice you think you are getting does not seem to be a choice at all in terms of those benefits.

It is important that you consult with an employment lawyer who can ask you the questions that will help you decide what to do now. I strongly recommend that you do that as soon as possible.
