Just be happy that you don't have to go back to the office and pretend to work while everyone else treats you like you are dead to them. Notice period is the absolute worst.

They can’t fire you if you quit! (That’s meant as a lighthearted joke). But congrats on the new job and hope you enjoy the time off!

Every firm does this. Give your two weeks after unpacking your office.

Wait surely it doesn’t mean you’re not getting paid for your notice period? That wouldn’t work in the UK but not sure about the States.

Normal. Once they don’t need you for the transition you’re dead to them.

Spinoff question... I know FMLA technically only covers you if you've worked for 12 months at your employer but has anyone actually had their employer say "sorry you we only here for 10 months so you can take your two weeks of accrued vacation, after that we'll expect you back." ? Since FMLA is unpaid anyway, I would imagine most employers would at least let you have unpaid time off.

I’ve been totally buried in work for the last 2.5ish months and it’s taken a toll on me. I’m feeling very burned out, to the point where my productivity has tapered off over the past two weeks and I’m no longer able to bill the hours I want. I genuinely try, but at a certain point each day (usually around 6.5 hours) I just feel like I can’t do it anymore. My family is urging me to take PTO to recharge, but I’m too scared about losing more hours to actually do it. Does anyone have any advice?
