Missouri City, TX asked in Employment Law for Missouri

Q: I recently resigned from my job and stated an effective day but later changed the date

However the old date was never changed in the system. The management is refusing to change the date stating the reason as the company’s policy. Is this right even though all my separation documents reflects the new day and also signed by the manager

A: Unfortunately, your post is hard to follow without seeing the documents and better understanding the facts and what law applies. For example, Missouri is an employment-at-will state, so absent a contract with terms to the contrary you can quit or be fired at an time.
