Resolved Question:

I am employed as a salary plus commission sales person in the state of New York (my company's head office resides there). My employer is an at will employment company.
My residence is Virgina and I work remotely.
I have given my employer 2 weeks notice of my decision to leave the firm.
If they ask me to leave immediately, are they obligated to pay me my salary for the 2 weeks notice period?
If yes, how do I enforce my entitlement. Thx

Thank you for your question.

New York employment law does not have a mandatory notice provision. Unless you have a notice provision stated in writing in an employment contract which you have with the employer or if the employer has this as a stated employment policy in an employee handbook/manual, then the law treats you as an at-will employee and the employer may decide to accept terminate you upon your resignation immediately without the need to pay your salary through the notice period.
