IF you give your employer your two weeks notice, are they obligated (by Law) to pay you even if they tell you to take a hike?
No. However, as a result of them telling you to take a hike, they discharged you at their own leisure and not for good cause due to misconduct.
Congrats, you're now eligible for Unemployment if that's truly what happened and you didn't get any accrued vacation or leave payouts. Those are deducitble from your benefits.
So the truth is you probably won't be able to collect by the time you start your new gig.
Them's the breaks, bro.
