  • Some employees who provide advance notice of resignation may be entitled to unemployment compensation if the employer acts hastily after receiving notice of resignation. See Notice of Resignation.
  • Some employees who resign for "hardship" may be disqualified from eligibility to receive unemployment benefits if they do not make certain disclosures to the employer or otherwise try to work out their differences. See Notice of Resignation.
