I’m not an auditor and never worked on the client as an auditor. I am an analytics. Just checking here. Why can’t people just give good advise rather than criticize

Depends. Did you work on the job in the past year or no? If not, no problem. If so, have fun

If they ask you to leave, you'll get paid. Don't trip. As if they're going to screw over an employee going to a big client. Odds are you are not high level enough to create an independence issue if you have to ask on Fishbowl lol.

“Should I worry about any independence issues?” is something you should be asking BEFORE the event causing the potential issue (accepting the job), not after.

I plan on giving my 2 weeks today to join our biggest audit client in our market. Question is will I be asked leave immediately?

OP, maybe because you can't phrase the question appropriately to start? No, because of your level and group you work in, it wouldn't cause an independence issue. Still doesn't mean they may not make you leave same day....depends on what your schedule looks like for the next 2 weeks, etc.

Only independence issue would be if your new position is an FROR role

What is FROR????

Financial reporting oversight role (ie CFO, Controller, financial reporting team, etc)

Googled it too. Thanks
