Two Weeks Notice

Alhaji265Alhaji265 Member Posts: 205 ■■■□□□□□□□
Since I submitted my 2 weeks notice this past Monday (the day my boss came back from vacation) on the 26th, my manager has been making things slightly difficult for me - not assigning work for me the day after I submitted my notice, giving me much harder work and last but not least the I worked last week were changed to 0!

I already notified my agency about whats been happening, especially my hours worked last week. As far as the additional nonsense, should I file the complaint or just worry about getting my paycheck?

    You've submitted your notice and at this point I would concentrate on transitioning projects and work to other employees rather than taking on additional and increasingly difficult tasks. Since you have about a week of work left at your current position, do your best to enjoy your last week on the job and just have fun with it. I wouldn't stress too hard about it and I would sit back and enjoy the last week of pay at this position. Start mentally preparing yourself for bigger and better and remember, in the end its just a job!

    Good Luck

    I agree just worry about getting paid and focus on the next chapter of you life. Karma will catch them in the end.

    They can't hold your pay from you legally. Get the paycheck and move on.

    This. If they do give your local Department of Labor office a call. Document your hours and duties then move on. Providing two weeks notice is a professional courtesy. If they act unprofessional towards you and you don't care about the reference then give immediate notice you quit.

    Sorry to hear that you got a bum deal. Take the high road is all I can offer for advice. You know the situation a lot more intimately than I.

    2 weeks .. I had jobs where I had 12 weeks notice and because the people were <insert curse word here>, I stopped caring the day I resigned.

    I did my job I was supposed to, to make sure I get paid - the rest is history.

    So in this case, should I have a talk with my manager to clear things up before leaving? My reason for this is not to have bad blood against him even though I may not (or may) cross his path? He works in another state.

    Sounds like you made the right choice to move on. :)
    And, yeah, I'd make damned sure that "0 hours worked" got corrected.
