  • "Pay Without Notice" in Texas Texas

    Is there such a concept as "pay without notice" in Texas whereby someone who is terminated (fired) from employment (without notice or previous warnings) and made to leave that same day is entitled to two weeks pay because of the absence of the warning and termination notice?

    No, there is no such law in any state.

    It is not impossible that some union or other employment contracts have such a requirement, and pay in lieu of notice is required if WARN applies. There are three states ( none of the Texas) where severance pay is required in some very limited situations, all of them involving mass layoffs or plant closings. But there is no law anywhere in the US that requires an employer to provide any amount of pay to an employee who is fired without previous warnings other than as indicated above.
    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.
