    This is what I would do as well. If they are going to fire you right after you give your 2 weeks anyway, you aren't hurting anything by waiting until your comission check clears to give notice. They'll say, "See ya." And you'll say, "Thank you very much."

    At witch point you should be able to claim unemployment for your base wage for the following 2 weeks. That's how I understand it anyways. May be different in your state.

    I was fired a couple days after giving my old employer my 2 week notice. He waited untill I finished the project I was working on and then it was "hit the road Jack".

    When I gave my 2 week notice at my last job, they had me type up the job description and help interview for my replacement.

    My wife is in HR, and if you turn in a 2 week notice and they elect to not keep you for the 2 weeks, it's still a resignation not a termination, and you are not eligible for unemployment.

    Giving a 2 week notice is just a common courtesy. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Take care of yourself first.

    With the exception of one instance, I have always given 2-3 weeks notice. At my last position I gave 4 weeks notice so I could have an uninterrupted chance at documenting absolutely everything in my head (cranked out 400 pages of WI/SOPs during that time). It was always the ethical thing to do.

    But... I have noticed that sales and quoting would get walked out the same day they put in notice. I figured this was due to the possibility of sabotage or pulling proprietary information if it wasn't the friendliest of exchanges. Several prior co-workers were issued C&Ds over it.

    As bad as it sounds, don't give notice. Watch out for numero uno.

    The next "logical" approach is to get it in writing that you will receive commissions, but that's revealing your hand. Don't do it.

    And, I would also makes sure to keep your intentions hush-hush. My previous employer found out I was moving before I even knew myself! How did that happen? My family told a friend of theirs, who happened to be related to my co-worker. I wasn't decided on moving and had no idea of a timeframe. The next thing I knew, I was in an office being asked why I'm quitting. Quite embarrassing when I walked back in a week later and said "yeah, I guess I am moving..."

    I'm in sales here & I have been screwed by a company before that owed me $10k+ in commissions. Get your $ first then tell them.

    Never heard of a resignation qualifying for unemployment. Maybe it's different in PA but I've never seen someone that quits get UEB. Also, if you're terminated for 'cause' i.e. violating company policy or stealing etc you'll be denied benefits that way too.

    Let me explain to you what I'm seeing from his post. He works on commission. If he resigns and ends up getting fired (some places show you the door even if you give notice) he can still collect.

    SVTP would start a high class strip club in the new location. We would then invite the old boss to the club, put him in a compromising position, get pictures and blackmail him.

    OP - this is spot on. If you give your notice, they’re going to term you on the spot. Which means no commission.

    You seem like an honorable person who wants to do the right thing, and I’m cut from the same mold. I lost a five figure bonus in 2016 being honorable, and I realized business is business. I should have done things differently. Don’t repeat my mistake.

    That is correct in my neck of the woods as long as it's not for 'cause'.

    With most companies you’re not eligible for any bonuses or commissions once you tender your resignation.

    Just something to consider.

    My wife has a great job where commission comes into play twice a year and she has known people who were either flat out fired based on numerous reasons or flat out fired minutes after giving notice. Serving the HR dept with papers resulted in each one of these people (and there were about five) receiving commissions, back pay, costs, etc.., Word of mouth and bad publicity would end up costing more than what the company paid each person for what they rightfully earned.

    BTW, all of them were able to collect. Crazy.
