Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Good afternoon. I am Loren, an Illinois licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Assuming no contractual provision to the contrary, there is no legal obligation that you give 2 weeks notice to resign. Nor is there a legal obligation the employer keep you on the job after you resign, if you do give advance notice.
However, if they do elect to keep you employed during the notice period then they have to pay you.
Did you have further questions? Have I answered your question?
If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (5 stars) so that I am credited by JustAnswer for assisting you. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
