This is a hypothetical question, as it hasn't happened to me, but has anyone been fired after they gave written resignation and notice to their employer? If so, did it count against you as far as your eligibility for rehire? Does your old employer consider that you left voluntarily in good standing, or that you left before fulfilling your notice? This situation is bound to have happened to someone somewhere before. How horrible would it be if you gave your employer a 30 day notice to be nice and professional, and on your last day they fired you just to be jerks? Or they told you not to come back your last week and then tell HR that you left without giving notice? As horrible as it sounds, I'm sure this practice happens in places. I worked with a nurse who gave two weeks notice at the hospital and the manager told him he didn't have to work his last 3 days. Whether or not they counted it against his eligibility for rehire, I don't know, I never had contact with him after he left. I know when I quit and gave my two weeks notice they kept me on the schedule for the full two weeks.
