Is employers, who lay off at the drop of a hat, and when they do that of course they do not give any notice - you are simply escorted to the door like a criminal and that is that. If they are really jerks they do not even allow you to collect your things in your cube, just get the hell out now. Personally, I've decided if they ever try that with me, I'm not leaving until I get my stuff, they can watch me do it, that's fine, but I'm not leaving without my personal belongings, and they can call the cops and have me arrested and tortured as a terrorist or whatever fascist crap they want to do, but a scene will occur if they ever attempt that stunt with me.
But my peeve is, these guys will not hesitate to lay people off, but I've still heard them say how anyone who leaves before they get around to downsizing you "owes" them the "required" two week notice. Um, dudes, you are "owed" nothing, anymore than you owe them, except paying them for what they worked, it's a courtesy not a requirement by law - we are employees not slaves we can walk out the door anytime. I just wonder how the hell do these guys get it into their heads that people "have" to do that. Treat people right and they generally will go the extra mile for you, but it's not at all a requirement, and I get tired of listening to the people who preach about loyalty but don't practice it saying how we "owe" them this. Um, no, we don't, anymore than you "owe" us notice before you have us walked out the door.
