I gave my two weeks notice, was asked to leave a few days prior to my last day. According to HR, my last day to work was 9/30/04 instead of 9/18/04. Is my employer supposed to pay me for the full two weeks and my vacation time? Can my employer decide to pay me for a portion of the two weeks and only a few days of my vacation?

Two weeks notice refused

Assuming you actually stopped working on 9/18/04, your employer is not obligated to pay you beyond that date. Simply offering your employer two weeks notice before your resignation does not entitle you to two more weeks of employment. The employer must only pay you for the days you actually worked.

With respect to the vacation time, whether you are entitled to receive pay for vacation days accrued will depend upon your employer's policy on vacation. Unless the employer has a policy requiring it to pay employees for accrued vacation time, it has no such obligation under Texas law.
