Unfortunately, providing a generous amount of notice that you are leaving your job is not always rewarded. In fact, it is becoming commonplace for employers to terminate the employment of an employee who has provided notice before the end of the notice period.
What happens when an employee provides two months notice, but is fired before the employee's provided end date ? While the answer can be intricate and a lawyer should be consulted immediately, the employee is generally entitled to the lesser of an amount that equals the remaining notice given by the employee or the amount the employer would have to pay the employee if they had decided to terminate them.
