I told him yesterday that today is his last day and I'd pay him up to Friday 3/8. Today he showed up to the office before me and left the keys and company cards at my desk. Then he left and shot me an email from home saying he was sad and going to the welfare office right away.
Is a Severance Agreement necessary? How should I handle his pay? The direct deposit is set up. Do i need to meet him with his final pay check? or just let the direct deposit go through?
