If so when?

With me, I usually give it the day I want to quit after I got my most recent check and in the past the employer will ask if I want to leave sooner. My friend works as a bank teller and she gave hers on payday and they took back her check with the account she had with them!

That did you a lot of good. If you care about your future employment you give a two week notice. If you don't they can tell wherever you are trying to get hired on. It doesn't make you look good.

I only have to give a week at my job, but I'm giving them over a month so they have time to find a replacement. I try not to burn bridges!

That has to be false- it would highly illegal for them to take back any money they paid her or working. Also, it would be illegal for them to remove money from her account without prior authorization.

Always give as much notice as possible; but at least 2 weeks. It should say in the company handbook exactly how much time is needed.

It does not sound like someone like you would be able to type out a proper resume.

Thought the same thing..hehehe..And giving at least a 2 wk notice is not asking for much..The way the job market is you want to be able to put as much experience down and less of any convictions..lol

Legally a previous employer cannot condemn an ex employee if contacted for reference as in saying anything negative, they are however in a way able to depending on how the potential new employer interprets their answer to the question "would you hire this person to work for you again?" Basically, they are allowed to say yes and no, otherwise no matter the facts of what kind of person or worker u were , it's unethical and against policies etc. to "slander" during a reference call. Make sense?

Oh that being said, two weeks notice doesn't necessarily negatively affect ur future jobs, of course it could bcs u never know who knows who, but don't expect to return to that place of employment if u have not given two weeks. Like for example, u leave the hospital, go back in 3-5 yrs wanting job again there r rules they won't hire you

I take calls everyday and trust me, you can only say so much but you can get your point across. A two weeks notice is very important if you ever want to be a "professional"

You didn't used to be able to say anything, those laws have changed recently I believe. Now you can give more info, although I do not know the limitations.

I don't leave jobs without giving proper notice. I just don't feel right burning any professional bridges because you just never know who you're going to run into later in life.

It's considered falsifying documents to not put your correct Employment history in order. Most companies have the rite to terminate your employment if you give false information on your résumé
