    Hi there, We have an employee who has worked for us for 1 1/2 years in one of our warehouses as a Machine Operator. He gave written notice he is quitting and his last day in the note is 4 weeks from now. We told him we didn\’t require him to stay so he left that day. Can I just pay out the 2 weeks required by law at that point or am I paying out the 4 weeks?Thanks for your help

    No, you cannot give just the 2 weeks. The employee gave 30 day’s notice, if you told him that he did not need to serve out the notice period, you are required to pay him for the entirety of that notice period; unless the employee agrees to change his notice or accepts two weeks. You would want this to be documented, agreed upon and signed.
