What are possible consequences of giving less than 2 weeks notice when resigning from a startup? What if it’s less than a week?

- New ednapj01If they have be good to you, then follow the general rule of thumb of 1 week for every year you have been with the company. If you have been there less than a year, 2-3 days is just fine.
- I agree with @ednapj01. The company I work for has laid off people before and given them like 30 minutes notice. Those people were walked out of the office with their belongings. Some of those people worked on weekends and put in long hours. There was no two-week courtesy for them and it’s considered normal. If I left like that, I would be burning bridges. How is it fair?
- That’s a lame reason.
1. You have 2 weeks, not 4. So even if you got fired right away, you’d have a 2-week gap.
2. Give notice on Dec 1. Even if they walked you out right away and you didn’t start until Jan 31, which is effectively 2 months gap, your resume says worked at company X until Dec 2018 and started at company Y in Jan 2019. No one sees a “gap”...Nov 30, 20181
- If the new company won’t let you start for another month, then you wait until 2 weeks before you can start and then give your two week’s notice to your current company.
If they walk you out same day, you have 2 weeks off. If they don’t, then you get no break between companies...

It's courtesy to wait for two weeks till others can take over the void , but not a standard o rule. I left withing a week but made sure I updated all documentations. And bid happy goodby go all
