Our policies and procedures require a two week notice upon resignation. If an employee in good standing resigns, giving the two week written notice and the employer then asks them to leave immediately, must the employer pay the two weeks wages?
My company requires two weeks, but many who follow the policy are then escorted out on the spot, their wages ceasing at that time. It seems as though this practice discourages employees from giving notice.
I have been offered a position at another company and have never left a job without giving notice, but it would create a hardship for me to go two weeks without any wages. How can I do the right thing with my current employer, but protect myself?
