I don't think you can justifiably fire someone for giving notice but rather you make the resignation effective immediately.

But you have to be willing to pay them up until the date they claimed as their last day? Otherwise you are the one terminating their employment.

Of course I don't think it is usually done because of money. It is done because they don't want someone who is jumping ship to a competitor to have unfettered access to a bunch of secret shit for a few weeks.

No, you don't have to pay them to their last day. Someone gives you notice, you accept it on an immediate basis, goodbye. You do have to follow your PTO payout policy though as if they worked out their notice. Trust me, this is not my first trip to the rodeo over this stuff.

They make a show here of having security escort employees out of the building if they are jumping ship to a competitor. I don't get it, if they wanted to steal corporate intelligence, they would've had weeks to do it before announcing their leave

Hmm...Apparently, like all things employment law, it varies by state.

In some states, you can claim unemployment in that situation after a one week waiting period (so for two weeks notice, you could get a week of benefits). But not in most states, including yours and mine.

I went to Subway today just hoping to enjoy a relaxing meal but wouldn't you know it the guy ahead of me in line got angry and caused a ruckus. Here's how it went down:

Customer: Please prepare for me a footlong Philly Cheese Steak submarine sandwich on Honey Oat bread.
Sandwich Artist: Aww man I live for dat Philly Cheese Steak sandwich so good!
Customer: You haven't put much thought into this statement. It requires qualifiers before it even begins to approach status of true, or else you got a narrow life to you.
Sandwich Artist: Uhh, I just meant it's a sandwich of which lifts my spirits when I direct my thoughts to it.
Customer: Too little too late I have to believe you prepare sandwiches as carelessly as you speak, to where my sandwich will be prepared hell of badly. I'm departing this establishment forthwith just donate my sandwich to Jason Newstead gave his two week notice and got fired.

No thanks to you for failing to write what you meant to say.

I'm sick and have no energy, and the cold medicine I took to relieve my symptoms has made me too jittery to focus on my work. Foiled again. angry.gif
