    DO NOT mention this. Also don't give a crap about taking a job for 3-4 months... Employers put their people through the ringer and don't give two craps about you. Gone are the days of "correctly leaving a job"... I'm not saying go full-on HALF-BAKED on your way out, but simply giving two weeks notice if you are walking away is all that is needed. Don't mention that you have something else in the works for the new year. If you need to stay at that job after, you can save face and don't look like you are settling with that employer.

      You are not required to give any notice (two weeks or otherwise) to quit a job, unless you have contractually agreed to do so through some sort of employment agreement. A lot of employers tell you that you need to give two weeks notice, but you don't have to. Smart employers who would like two weeks notice will offer some sort of incentive, like some sort of severance pay, in exchange.
      That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

        Exactly. The only reason you don't do that is if you ever plan on returning or you need references.

        That said, i'd still give two weeks because I'm a good guy. Their choice to escort me to the door and pay me for two weeks vacation or let me finish out.

          Why would they pay you the two weeks? At will works both ways - nobody owes nobody nothin'.

              If I'm escorted out the door the day I submit my two weeks, I get paid the two weeks. That's how the contract works. Maybe for a POS job, you don't have that.

              In the end, I'll be submitting over a month in advance, but that will be retirement. And who knows, if I'm lucky, I'll get 6 months pay, as people are getting right now.

                  There's an argument (supported by case law in some states) that "at-will employment" is actually a series of contracts based on how often the employee is paid. So, if I'm paid every two weeks, and at the beginning of the pay cycle I tell my employer that will be my last employment cycle, and the employer then terminates my employment, they would owe the rest of the pay cycle.

                    Because if they did that, in theory you could go after them for unemployment for those 2 weeks. And by the time they deal with that and take the hit to their UI insurance rates, it's simpler and easier for them to just pay you 2 weeks' salary to go away.

                        In truth, if I ever had an employee so disgruntled that they quit and walked off the job on the spot, I'd pay him TEN weeks, just to try to reduce the likelihood of an employment suit.

                        Take THAT!

                        • I realize I'm pretty well done at my current position. Just passed mile 26 and can hear bells at the finish line.

                          Meijer was good for why I needed it and it's okay to leave.

                          • So, I am changing jobs and in my new role I am going to be a PM and will concentrate on being constructive and positive. Thus, I can no longer promise regular deliveries of snark. I believe we have plenty of other resources to pick up the slack, however. It has been an honor to serve so long in that capacity.

                            OTOH, you will get more positivity and support. If you're into that kind of thing.

                                Good luck, but being in the same boat I've found the snark still slips out when a project is trending red, or a customer or coworker is particularly...uh..."difficult".
