    No, you do not. According to the state of California website:

    Q.I just gave my employer two weeks advance notice that I was quitting. Instead of letting me work until the date of my resignation, he told me that I was discharged, and instructed me to collect my personal belongings and leave. Upon leaving he gave me a check for all wages earned up through my last hour of work. Am I entitled to be paid for the time that I gave notice? Additionally, when must my final wages be paid?

    A.You are not entitled to any wages for the notice period because you did not perform any work during that period. For the purpose of wage payments, your employer changed a quit into a discharge, and all of your earned wages became due and payable immediately at the time he terminated you.

    Accepting a Resignation-CA

    I recently had an employee submit a letter of resignation, giving a six week notice. I accepted her resignation, however did not wish to honor her six week notice. I modified her last day of employment to be the end of that current week. When later contacted by the EDD, I was asked if I paid her through the entire 6 week period given in her resignation. I did not. Was I required to pay her through that period?
