  • Can an employer allow me to work after committing a firable offense? Nevada

    Just lost my job, and a coworker told me it was illegal for the employer to allow me to finish working for the day after I committed a "firable offense".

    Any truth to this?

    Ask the coworker to show you such law because if it exists you're going to have a lot of suprised people here.

      I thought it sounded a little fishy too, but just figured I would check it out just in case.

        No law addresses this but it makes no sense for an employer to allow a terminated employee to continue to work. It would be awkward for all concerned, no one would get much work done because of the atmosphere and the terminated employee could potentially do a lot of damage during the rest of the day.

          Good point, I read it as offense was committed , continued to work , fired later.

          Are you saying you were terminated and then continued to work? If so it doesn't change the answer but I'd find it odd.

            I committed what they deemed was a firable offense, supervisor told me I wont be working anymore and that we needed to have a meeting the following morning and then hung up the phone.

            Just returned home from the meeting in which I was fired.

            I knew I was getting the axe, so it came as no surprise.
