Today, I handed in my resignation letter after over 3 and a half years working at the company. My manager is angry with me, since we returned from an overseas business trip yesterday and why didn't I inform her before the trip. She now wants me to pay all costs of trip before leaving the job. FML

What should you do?Your timing is suspect, and handing in your resignation the day immediately following an overseas trip will not help portray you favorably in the case of a dispute. Questionable judgement aside, you can ignore it and force her hand. Like the commenters above me note, docking your pay is cause to report her to your labor board. Because we've only heard your side of the story, we are unable to objectively assess the situation. Keep us updated.

Would it have killed you to have waited about a week after the trip before handing the letter in? I mean I understand why your boss is floored, and while they don't have the right to penalize you...what you did was not exactly polite.
But hey, that's just my two cents.
