I would recommend reviewing your employee handbook, because you may be eligible or ineligible for vacation pay or other benefits if you do not provide two-weeks notice. The employee handbook will provide any guidance.

    Answered . The phrase "two weeks notice" has entered our lexicon, but has no force of law. It has, however, garnered some moral suasion. Courtesy counts -- not as a legal matter though. If you wish to leave on good terms, it is ordinarily incumbent upon you to consult with your employer as to how much time is needed by the employer in order to avoid transition difficulties.

    Good luck to you.
