Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
I am sorry to hear that the employer decided to essentially terminate your employment early..
But from a legal perspective, when an employee gives a 2 week notice, they aren't guaranteed to be able to work for that 2 weeks. What they are saying legally is "I am quitting now, but I will work for another 2 weeks if you would like".
So the employer is free to make the resignation effective immediately if they don't want to accept the offer of 2 more weeks services from the employee.
With that said, you would be able to file for unemployment for those 2 weeks because they accelerated your end date.
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time.
If you feel your original question and any related follow ups have been answered, I would very much appreciate a positive rating on the answer I have provided as that is the only way I receive credit for my work. If you have a new question the JustAnswer folks require that you start a new question page, but you can request me by putting "For Barrister" in the caption and they will get it to me.
Have a great evening!
