Fired

questions & answers

Question: When I was terminated by my employer, i was given the option to voluntarily resign and get a good reference from them, or to be fired with no reference. In retrospect i believe that this was an attempt to preclude my being able to claim unemployment. Is it legal for an employer to present these as the only two options for an employee?

Answer: Yes, these two options are acceptable and the employer is not obligated to give you different choices.
