A: The answer to this question depends on the state law in the state where you are performing the work. It also depends on whether you signed any agreement with your employer regarding required notice, as well as the company's policies. To start, you should check your employee handbook if you have one. You could contact an employment attorney in your area to discuss further.

A: It depends on which jurisdiction (state) you are in. Some states like California do not like forfeitures, so you are entitled to the cash equivalent of the paid time off when you quit, and you are paid within 72 hours of giving notice. Other states do not have these protections. There isn't currently any Federal Law that addresses this issue. You should contact a local attorney to discuss this- Employment law.
