Resigned and was terminated on spot

I am currently a manager at a small medical collection firm. I am about to give my notice 8 weeks in advance. The owner of the company has a track record for letting people go as soon as they give notice. My questions is if her fires me before my date of resignation am I still eligible to receive unemployment benefits. Also I have 28 days of PTO available. Am I still eligible to be paid for that time and receive unemployment.

The receipt of PTO should have no effect on your entitlement to unemployment. If you are terminated, you may be entitled to unemployment at least for the 8 week period unless your employer pay you wages in lieu of notice. However, I have not seen any cases discussing this issue and am not sure if the unemployment office will agree with my view on this.
