Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to help if I can. Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct any necessary research, and type a response. Thank you.
Yes, I'm sorry to say that your employer has the right to change your last day, just as you would have that same right if you decided that your last day would be the 14th instead of the 15th. Both you and your employer have that same right. Of course, this means that you can start your new job (if you have one waiting) early.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied. Also, please remember to provide a positive rating via the stars (and note that your positive rating is the only way that I'll get credit for helping you, so it is much appreciated!). Thank you. :)
If you're not working from the 16th to the 23rd, then they certainly don't need to pay you your regular time during that period. Giving you PL time for that period is the same as simply paying you for unused PL time. So that is certainly allowed, and is actually very good news for you since not all employees who quit a job get paid for unused PL time.
Hello again. I didn't hear back from you, and you haven't yet rated me, so I'm just checking in to make sure that you don't need more help on this issue.
