I wanted to ask a question in regards to resigning from a job and getting some kind of payment through centrelink eg. Newstart Allowance.
I have been working part time for approx nine months and have been really happy with my job. I was recently confronted by my boss and he pretty much said he wasnt happy with my performance but he didnt fire me. I had no warning, no complaints have been made against me and i get along well with my co workers.
I have seriously considered resigning and have even written and typed up a resignation letter. I have heard though if you resign from your job you cant get any benefits for up to 8 weeks is this correct?
Im also 3 and a half months pregnant an i have two other children below school age. I have not told my boss that i'm pregnant and i'm not showing yet so i dont think he is trying to get rid of me because of that. I wanted to continue with my job for as long as i could, then take maternity leave and come back, but now i just feel terrible and want to leave. Anyone been in a similar situation or someone who could offer some advice would be great.
