Is serving 1 week notice mean being in bad books of employer? I am just exhausted and feel burnt out from constant weekend work and 15hrs of work daily for months and no resource to help to share the work load due to budget constraints. Finally had to pull the plug and I am so glad i did.But leadership wants 2 to 3 weeks of notice whereas I am serving 1 week only.

Yes it’s bad form. Many companies have a section for HR to select “provided 2 weeks notice” or “rehireable”.

I’d say 2 weeks is standard. Just maybe work less the second week.

Can you take vacation then put in your notice? The last week can serve as your transition.

But arent we "at will" state? And when employers dont give 2 week notice to fire ppl how do they expect 2 weeks of full work week

Sure we are “at will”. But a company will only fire you without notice for outrageous ethical violations. They’ll often put you on a PIP (which is several weeks/months notice that you’re slipping) or provide some form of notification & severance if you are laid off due to the economy (ie no fault of yours). A courteous company and employee will provide two weeks notice.

I have heard of ppl been given 1 week notice to leave...there has been no violation just firing to reduce workforce during covid!

Give two weeks. Companies almost pay out severance of more than that when they let people go, but that shouldn’t be relevant. Giving less will burn bridges. People talk. A lot. Do you really want people saying, “he/she really left us hanging when he/she only gave a week’s notice of quitting which didn’t provide enough time to properly transition?”

I lead a team of women (ranging from 2-8 years into their careers) and want to advocate for their career growth with management. I’ve made the case for promotions and raises (have been pushing for this for months and keep being told “soon”—but I won’t give up), but I also want to try smaller asks and would love suggestions. Are there any books, one-off classes/trainings, virtual events, memberships, etc. that you’d recommend? Thank you!
