Sometimes, employees get angry and say things they later regret. Recently, an employer accepted an angry resignation and avoided unemployment compensation liability.
Recent case: John Stassen worked as a part-time collector for a trucking firm. Customers from whom he tried to collect often complained that he was disrespectful and aggressive. When one customer demanded a transfer to another collector, Stassen got indignant and fired off an email in which he offered to stay to train a replacement, but was open to immediate departure. HR accepted his email as a resignation.
Stassen said he hadn’t resigned and applied for unemployment. His application was denied based on his email resignation and the employer’s right to accept the offer. (Stassen v. Lone Mountain Truck Leasing, No. A11-954, Court of Appeals of Minnesota 2012)
