Ooops--you are outta here
If you quit, you may give two-weeks notice, but don’t count on getting that money. Lawyer Ty Frankel of Bonnett, Fairbourn, Friedman & Balint, says unless you have a contract specifying this, the employer can just ask you to leave.
And don’t let the door…
You only need to be paid for the time you worked and under employment at will, employers can terminate you anytime. Such as when you say you are quitting.
This can also have unemployment benefit implications.
But not paying the notice period can cause ill will and low morale, so many employers do go ahead and do it.
If they don’t do it, employees may know that and just walk without putting their files and situation in order first.
Try to plan this and know where you stand..
Is your employer dickish—well, think about that ahead of time.
