If one resigns, what states give unemployment? I thought UI generally requires layoffs, closures, and such, not leaving on one's own by choice or for cause

You can always apply for unemployment. If your company doesn't challenge it, you get it. If they do challenge, it will come down to state laws on reason why you left, etc. You can plead your case to the state's UI office.

This is my knowledge of how it works from a few years ago. Things may have changed since then.

Short and to the point, give to your supervisor when informing them of your resignation. My tactic was to find the nearest-thing-to-a-supervisor that would be there face to face, and she declined to accept the written letter. It was relatively pleasant for a gut wrenching experience (really didn't want to leave, but made no sense to stay).

Looking at the last time I did it, I printed out a formal business letter-style (so it has home contact info on it), signed it, scanned it, and attached it to an email.

The formal letter had just one sentence saying I resigned and effective what date.

The email the letter was attached to said when I'd be getting into the office (I emailed this right before I left for the train) and that I would discuss with the managers what they'd like me to do re: documentation,etc. for the next few weeks.

The formal letter was for HR documentation purposes. It's a courtesy.

Others just sent one sentence emails, and that also worked.

I recommend not texting one's resignation.

I don't think I've ever written a resignation letter. I've always had an exit interview with paperwork involved which has been formal enough for me.

I would make sure to email it so that you have a record of the communication for legal reasons. If you send it with your work email, make sure you cc it to your private email so that you have a copy for keepsakes.

Here's how you write this one

Dear Manager,

I will be leaving my job effective today. I am being transferred to [Local County Jail] before being moved to [Nearby State Jail] while they figure out where the body of my previous roommate is. I can assure it wasn't me. This is a temporary setback. I'll be back in the game bro, you know how it is.

I you mark me as "Do Not Hire", I have recordings of you that I will use as blackmail.

Thank you,

Who is the author actuaries hate and why do they hate him so much?

I must not have been clear with my current date plus two weeks reference. What I meant by that is if you handed the letter to your boss on say 4/12/2018 you would write your resignation date of 4/26/2018.

So, yes, I agree with you, and what you said is what I tried to convey originally. I was unclear on that.
