I have been suspecting my employer (Ontario, Canada) will be laying off some employees. I did not consider myself safe due to some non-performance related factors. Therefore; I have been interviewing else where. I have received an offer today which I have accepted. I'm giving my two week notice tomorrow.
In the recent couple weeks, management meetings have increased. Again, my suspicion is that the layoffs are very soon. If the layoffs happen after my two week notice, I don't care. I won't be around. But I want to prepare in case they happen during my two week notice. Is it better for my employment record that I have resigned or been laid off? Or it doesn't matter since an external entity cannot know either way? If resignation is better, should I bring it up with my manager in case I was laid off in the next two weeks?
