Under general circumstances an employer is not required to pay for time covered by a resignation letter.

The employer might have a policy to pay for the period of time covered by a resignation letter if the employer chooses to release the employee from work before the resignation date. In that case the employer might be liable for unpaid wages for that time period. But that only applies if the employer voluntarily adopted such a policy.
