2 weeks notice

I have two weeks notice on March 25, 2005, in an email (which I unfortunately did not save a copy of). On March 26, 2005 at 2 pm, I was told that this was my last day and that I could leave immediately. Can they do that? Are they obligated to pay me for the remainder of the two weeks?

Two Weeks Notice

There is no law requiring either employers or employees to provide two weeks notice before separating. An employer can show you out the door at any moment. An employee can walk out the door at any moment. Without a word. Without a reason. All of this is because of the employment at will doctrine, which works in two ways, that is, both for the employer and the employee, depending on the circumstances.
