In my experience, no one is in the office the last week of December. Adding one more week to that if you have nothing to do seems perfectly fine.

I would go in and just work minimally, show that you are a team player but don’t come in early or work late. You can use that time for writing an article, marketing, touching base with partners, etc. and then make just take a couple days off. But don’t just not show up for 2 weeks.

For clarity, and by way of example, my firm will only give you a bonus if you bill 100 extra hours over your billable hours requirement (and 200, and 300, and so on, but no bonus for 25 or 50). If you meet your billable hours requirement on, say, December 15, and there’s no way you’re going to bill another 100 hours between then and December 31, and you’ve wrapped up all your existing projects, is it acceptable for you to peace out?

I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...
