  • Virginia-Valid contract for two week notice?

    My wife recently changed jobs. Her former employer's employee handbook "required" a written two weeks notice before leaving empoyment and each employee was required to sign a document that stated they would abide by all guidelines and regulations within the employee handbook.
    When she submitted her two weeks notice, she was asked to leave that day and was not paid for those two weeks.
    My question...Is signing a document to abide by the employee handbook guidelines and regulations considered a valid contract that could possibly lead to her getting paid for those two weeks??

    It's possible. It might even be probable. But only an attorney in your state can say for certain after reading the documentation in question.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Thanks CBG!!
      I hope this can be resolved without having to ask for the assistance of an attorney.
