I worked for a company for 5 years. The boss is also a (non-immediate) relative. I gave her 2 weeks notice during a verbal meeting, and she fired me on the spot. Told me to clean out my desk and leave immediately. I was very reasonable and offered to work after my resignation to complete tasks I had been assigned earlier in 2012. She stood there and watched me pack as much stuff as I could, and said she would box up and shift anything I leave to me. I was not allowed to clean out my computer of personal files.
Is this legal? To work for a company so long, give a very considerate notice of plans to move on, and be told to pack my desk on the spot?
What does employment law state about this?
Everything was verbal. I was told I would be paid up to the end of that day.
