2 weeks notice and pay


Does a company have to pay you for the 2 weeks after you give your two weeks notice if you don't work those days? Manager told me to go home for good after I handed him my resignation.

Sounds like he pretty much said to take your two weeks notice and shove it. If that was the case, I would think they would not have to.

Now, if you have vacation time or something like that it could be a different story.

Nope. At least in Louisiana, employment is "at will" for both parties. You can walk away with no notice, they can terminate you without just cause. Some companies will tell you that you don't have to stay the last 2 weeks and might pay you regardless (I 've seen public accounting firms do this) to keep a good relationship but it isn't required to pay anyone for the 2 weeks that they planned on working after they put in their notice.

Correct- they do have to pay you for accrued vacation etc. and any other amounts in accordance with your employment agreement (pending stipulations - you stay a certain length of time, you have good evals etc).

No - 2 weeks notice is just a courtesy to your employer to give them time to hire a replacement - there is nothing binding about it, for either side. If they refuse your offer to keep working, then they certainly don't owe you compensation for it.

This. Although if they tell you to buzz off immediately then you were probably better off leaving anyway. Either a) you weren't that valued an employee anyway or b) management is a bag of dicks. Maybe both.

Depends on what line of business you're in as well. If you are in sales going to a competitor then you'll get shown the door right there. If you are backoffice going somewhere else then if they show you the door you're probably somebody they wanted to get rid of anyway.

If you resign and give two weeks notice you have set your resignation date. If the company sends you home without pay you will qualify for unemployment

If you have it all documented --

Sounds like it is better to just up and quit then if you know you will be shown the door immediately?

Not really. I will do this so I can make my employee schedule as accurate as possible. I don't always trust employees to finish out their two weeks.

Or he's going to work for a competitor. I put in two weeks last year to go to a job in a different city and state that would never conflict with the job I was leaving. I finished my two weeks, they paid my time and my leftover vaca and we parted ways.

About a month after I left another guy in the department put in his two weeks and was going to work for a competing brand, same city. They told him not to finish his two weeks and he got paid his vacation time when he left.

Could also be a sales position. Realtors, brokers, car salesman and the like aren't going to be given two weeks worth of their soon to be former employers leads to work with.

Do NOT just up and quit. Put in your resignation and if you're told to leave, file for unemployment. You'll be eligible based on a scenario where you did not commit any type of misconduct associated with your employment.

Sounds like they rejected your 2 week notice.

This is why I don't give 2 weeks.

I mean would they give me 2 weeks notice? Probably not.

A respectable place will still consider it leaving on good terms. If they did a good job and attempt to put in a two weeks notice I will give them a good recommendation.
