Sometimes a job just doesn’t work out. Employers sometimes ask you to resign instead of firing you. This is an opportunity to negotiate the terms of your separation.
AoL Jobs suggests you and your soon-to-be former employer agree to how they’ll work with unemployment:
Typically, you’re not eligible for unemployment benefits if you resign, but if you explain to your unemployment agency that you were forced out and the company doesn’t dispute that, you’ll nearly always be able to collect benefits. Ask your employer to agree not to fight your application for unemployment – and get that agreement in writing.
Check out the other terms you should negotiate before you agree to resign at the link below.
