    Question What is the point of a two weeks notice if.. Indiana

    I recently put my two weeks notice in with a company, if they were to "let me go" before I fulfill my two weeks are they required to pay me?

    As has been stated about 6,592 times before, no. No law in any state requires that you be paid beyond the last day you actually worked.

    Come on now cbg I think you're exagerating a little. It couldn't possibly be more than 5,965 times.

    OP, in all seriousness now. If they let you go before your 2 weeks are up and you can't start new employment right away file for unemployment benefits.

    Agree, if you are let go early, file for UI benefits. However, there is a one week waiting period for benefits in Indiana.

    And, if you anticipate this happening, and you've quit for another job, ask the new employer if, this were to happen, if you could start earlier.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

    Good information here. I'm in Indiana, and you will be eligible to collect unemployment for that period.

    It is not illegal for them to do that.

    By all means Joe, if you have information suggesting that either statute or case law makes it mandatory for an employer to pay out an unworked notice period, by all means supply it.

    We all understand that contract, CBA or binding policy can change the answer, but the poster supplied no information to suggest that was the case.

    So where is the requirement? Under what law is the employer required to pay out an unworked notice?

    In other words, there isn't one.

    Thanks for playing. Pick up your consolation prize at the door.
