Q. When an employee gives two weeks’ notice, we prefer to terminate immediately. Is there anything that prevents us from doing that? We are worried that employees who are leaving may tamper with our systems. — V.L., Oregon

A. Absent an employment agreement or a collective-bargaining agreement, nothing precludes you from terminating immediately an employee who gives two weeks’ notice. In such cases, some employers choose to pay the employee for the two weeks, but you are not required to do that.
