If you give two weeks notice and your employer asks you to leave immediately, are you eligible for unemployment in Oregon?

Asking for a friend. She verbally gave 2 weeks notice and ended up leaving feeling like she'd been fired. She didn't sign anything but left with a check for all money owed to her.
She called the Oregon Employment Department and they told her to just file the claim and see what happens (?!), but she fears her former employer will contest her claim and doesn't want to deal with it unless she knows she'll win.
Any experience with this, or is there something in the law that specifically addresses this?
