Q. Boss is forcing me to give 2 weeks & the reason is not performing according to his expectation.
A: If you quit, with very few exceptions, you are not entitled to unemployment. Based on what you have shared, there are no exceptions that apply and you will not get unemployment if you quit (resign). Your boss cannot make you give a two week notice if you do not want to although he could fire you. However, if he fires you at least you will have a chance for unemployment benefits.
