Can a company force an employee leave early even if he wants to serve the notice period without paying any money? What is the common rule around this?

If they ask to leave they must pay you ..u can't work without getting paid

If you are asking a company can do this or not, then answer is yes, based on many different reasons they may do that, especially showing the compliance issue or discipline issues and many others.

I don't think they will because the legal risk is high. You're serving your notice period, you should be fine

Officially they won't force u but unofficially they will. You can check the offer letter the clauses will be there. In short if u want u can go in court but u know how that will end up. So it's better to leave if they are not paying you try to get some money. Use sympathy card and try to get else leave

I know someone it happened to. It's a bad situation.

Hmmm you should check your contract but Ive seen this a lot!

Happens all the time.

Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting.

Hi , Can anyone tell me how good is 75000+20% Performance based bonus for a 5+ years experience person in Amstelveen, Netherlands.

Go for it or stay the course? I’m getting about 30% more work but no title or pay increase. I could stay, doing the job I know and float along. OR. I could take a job for an even bigger, even more well known firm (not accounting). 15% more pay, better bennies, same job. I’m about 12 years from retirement. Should I stick to the known or go for it and brave the unknown?
