State/Country relating to question: Oklahoma
Hi, nice to see you again.I have never heard of 7 weeks notice being too little, from a professionalism point of view. Less than 2 weeks? yes. Many seem to choose a month. Can your employer make a stink? Yes, it is a free country. If you think 7 is not considered alot in your industry, that may be one thing, but if similarly situated professionals don't think 7 weeks is bad, than I would imagine that your employee making a stink will reflect ITS lack of professionalism, and not yours. But, that may not help you from a practical point of view - we can't control the employer's behavior all that much, unfortunately.You see what I am saying? ------- I think this is what you wanted to know.
