  • Resignation Question - Oregon

    After working for my company with an expemplary record, I have chosen to leave the industry and submitted my resignation in writing yesterday giving the company the last day of my employment as June 2nd in order to support my customers and the company. I am a salaried sales person. My future plans all revolve around this date as do my finances. My direct boss did not take kindly to my resignation and indicated in an email yesterday that he wants me to dump all my pertinent client information to the other employees in the office today and that my services will no longer be needed after Friday. I believe this is a huge disservice to my customers, but if they choose this action are the legally bound to pay me through the last day I agreed to work in my written resignation letter?

    No, there is no law in any state requiring an employer to pay out an unworked notice time, no matter whose decision it is that the notice remain unworked.
    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.

      Resignation Question - Oregon

      I just spoke with the parent company in California who I used to work for and they told me that in both California and Nevada it is the law that they must pay through the last day of written service even if they decide not to retain the employee.

        They are wrong.

          Ditto to cbg. They are also incorrect.

          And even if there were such a law in California and/or Nevada, they wouldn't apply to you since you worked in Oregon.
