Employment Law Illinois: Two Weeks Notice.

Many have ask this simple question about their job resignation. Question - I gave two weeks notice that l was leaving my job. My employer said my resignation was effective immediatey, and asked me to pack up my desk. Don't they have to pay me the two weeks? Answer - 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.
