I gave two weeks notice that l was leaving my job. My employer said my resignation was effective immediately, and asked me to pack up my desk. Don't they have to pay me the two weeks?
There is simply no federal or Illinois law that requires an employer to let people serve out a "two weeks" notice time. To the contrary, once you indicate you are intending to resign, the employer can accept that intention effective immediately.
