There is certainly a lot of confusion on this topic and I see posts on this topic often. Here is my knowledge: After someone submits their 2 week notice, they may or may not be asked to continue working for the remaining time. Often a large firm will ask someone to leave that day if they are going to a competitor (and maybe other reasons). Sometimes the person continues working for the 2 weeks. Regardless, any reputable firm DOES PAY the person for that 2 week period. I have never seen or heard of anyone being cut off early on their payroll. Further, unless state law and firm policy allows otherwise, all accrued and unused PTO is also paid out. Hope this helps.

They aren't "firing" you. Once you give your notice, you've technically quit. Often firms will decide whether or not it's worthwhile to keep you on for those 2 weeks or just pay you out any vacation time. I had a coachee that gave notice and they told him his last day could be that day. Reason was he didn't have any ongoing projects that needed to get wrapped up.

Zero special circumstances, I've known people to get walked out day of notice and to put in as much as 3-4 weeks of notice. Just depends on the person and where they are going. Far more likely to not get it if you're going to a direct competitor.

Yeah, regardless of competing firm or industry job, once you submit you 2 week notice it is entirely possible for your 2 weeks to be cut short. Not a rule, sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesnt. If you have work that your bosses want you to finish before you're gone then you're more likely to stay the full 2 weeks versus if you are not staffed or needed anywhere they'll drop you early.

It's not really fired on the spot. If they choose to not let you work the next two weeks you typically get paid for them

You should plan for it. I don’t think any circumstances have to apply.

Do you mean getting an offer..? I’m confused.

Good to know. Guess this is something not many people know until you get to that point. EA 1 commented opposite lol

My laptop was taken the same day I put in notice.
