I was told by my employer that I had made mistakes at work and was told several times, I was brought into a meeting and was told I had a choice, to be fired or to resign. If I resign they will make sure I collect unemployment. I was told if I was fired I would not be able to collect. I apologized for my mistakes , but they said they had a business to run and a name to keep in good standings. due to the fact that I have two small kids they said the only way to receive unemployment would be to resign. is this true? I now have a phone conference end of this month and am worried.

There is a question on the application asking if you were forced to quit!!  Document what happens - names, dates, he said, you said.  We are not affiliated with the unemployment office - you can call them for advice.  If you have performance reviews, emails, etc anything that gives an outsider a true glimpse of the situation.  Document any attempts you have made to salvage the employment relationship.  REMEMBER, THE UNEMPLOYMENT OFFICE MAKES THE FINAL DECISION BASED ON INFORMATION FROM BOTH SIDES AND THE LAW.  Personally I have trusted the unemployment office more than some employers.  Remain calm and do not let them upset you.  QUITTING MAKES IT HARDER TO COLLECT (not impossible, just more difficult).
