You may be entitled to a week of unemployment compensation

When you tell your employer that you intend to quit, you are not entitled to pay until you quit. A decent employer would respect that, since they all ask for a two week notice, but if they do not, they do not have to pay you.

However, you are entitled to unemployment compensation benefits until your resignation date. You have to wait a week first, then you are eligible until your resignation date. Thus, if you gave a two week notice and were fired the next day, you should receive a week of unemployment compensation, which is probably worth a few hundred bucks or more. If nothing else, applying for it shows your employer that you understand your rights when he or she gets crappy with you.
