Today, my company filed for bankruptcy, but the reorganize kind where it still functions. There are no funds to give out paychecks any time soon. They won't fire me. If I voluntarily quit, I cannot file for unemployment. I'm now an unpaid intern. FML

Actually, that is illegal (at least in my state). By law they are required to pay you, by the conditions outlined by your employment, for the work you have done for a week by the following Friday, if they can't pay you they have to terminate you.

You best start stealing as much crap as you can then, remember all the money is in Forks, no one wants spoons nowadays.

i'm sorry to hear that. hopefully everything will work out

So...get a new job!

Did you not read the FML?

Or just stop turning up

Hahh FYL, damn that sucks =)

Sucks man, but welcome to the real world. My brother has a Masters in Public Administration, and his field is so horrible for employment right now, that at one point, I was making more than him working at a pizzeria than he was. So believe me, I (though in relative terms) feel your pain.

Okay, well. Go find another job and then just work there. They'll have to fire you then, and plus you'll have a new job.

If he can even get a new job in this economy.

Then start looking for another job and dont go back to that one. You aren't being compensated for work so there isn't a point to going back. And if you stop showing up, they might just fire so you can collect unemployment.

#7, you're lame, you can't get unemployment from being fired. However, you can get unemployment if your company goes bankrupt and cannot pay you. At least in my state. You should check into that.

I think it must depend on the state. I got fired 2 years ago and I did get to collect unemployment. I live in New Hampshire.

You can get unemployment if you are fired, it just depends on why you were fired. I got fired once for going home sick, even though they had told me to go home. I had no problem getting unemployment for that.

No, the real money's in staplers and coffee cups. Or if you want to go big try to sneak of a couple computers and monitors. ( ̄^ ̄)ゞ
