If you give your two weeks notice, and the employer lets you go early, do they have to pay you for the two weeks?

Im from Chicago and work in the medical field. My hospital DOES pay you as long as you gave your two weeks notice. If they decide to let you go early for no reason other than to get rid of you quicker, thats on them and they need to give adequate reasoning to why they are letting you go earlier than planned...Did your job tell you why their letting you go earlier?

Employment at will, right? Many companies will pay, but they don't have to. (unless it's a union situation or something...which I'm guessing, it's not) They also don't have to (and would be stupid if they did) give you any specific reason as to why they made it immediate.

Sorry!

Agreed. Unless you are under some sort of contract / union agreement, they are not obligated to pay you for time you actually didn't work / earn (such as vacation earned). As stated above, some companies may choose to do so just to be a good corporate citizen, but I doubt that's the norm.

Then why give any notice at all if they're going to terminate you early anyway? Why not just quit the day of?

Well, I think many companies do pay for notice - they just don't have to. And giving notice to your employer is good manners, so to speak. They may or may not return in kind, but it's good to be able to say you were respectful to your former employer (if even just to yourself.) Fair - no, but polite for sure.

references and ability to rehire.

working in a small office for a major national corporation, i saw all of the scenarios happen and how our office mgr would flag the employee as someone to rehire or never rehire. calls for references would go depending on how they left the company as well

Not unless you have an employment contract, but most employment is "at will". If they don't want you to even complete the two weeks, then they'll definitely not want to pay you for them!

Also be weary of any non-compete clause you might have hidden in any contract you may have signed.
