I recently resigned from a VP position at a relatively small stagnant company with really no advancement possibilities to take a job at a similar larger company with much more upside and growth potential.
My employer took everything ok the day I resigned, I told him I would stay to make sure everything I was working on was taken care of, at least 2-4 weeks, then at the end of the following day I was told to pack up my stuff and go.
My question is what are my rights regarding pay for the 2 weeks I was going to stay, I was paid through the day I was asked to leave, and still had two weeks of vacation and a week of personal leave. Am I entitled to that pay, or should I just drop it. When I was on the other side of this type of situation, I would always pay the employee the 2 weeks if he/she was asked to leave early when they resigned.
I had stood by my offer to clean up any loose ends, and any communication has been met with silence. I didn't expect anything different. With this employer, once someone leaves either voluntary or involuntary, they are dead to him. I'm glad I'm gone, but also don't want to get stiffed out of thousands of dollars of pay and benefits if I have a right to them. I am in the State of Maryland.
Thanks for any input.
