    There is no law that says you must. It's an accepted - and expected - practice. You can expect an employer you just up and quit on to give a negative referral to any future employers you apply with. You might think it doesn't matter, you already have another job. Well, the average person starting out today is likely to work for ten or more different employers in their working years.

      Saying 'no, I wouldn't hire that person again' IS a negative referral. What the H is wrong with you?

    I believe you can give proper notice. It all depends on your employer. Before quitting, LOOK for more work, so your transition will be seemless.

    For a past good reference it is a good idea to give 2 weeks notice. That is to say if you plan on using them as a reference for future job applications. Sometimes you are forced to just quit with no notice.

  • It's generally good form and manners to give a 2 weeks notice, since that gives your employer time to find a replacement and to schedule everybody else accordingly, but in general you can just up and quit whenever you want.

    It depends on your employment agreement, which MAY be a general one, as set by the government.

    However, it's a good idea to give at least two weeks notice, If the employer chooses, he/she/it may end the emloyment immediately.
