    When you get fired from a job do you think you should leave the premises? Should the one who fired you understand you are not going to continue sitting at your desk for free? Should this create confusion? If you have ever been fired, but remained sitting at your desk anyway, please share your thoughts in order to bring clarity to such confusion. LOL

      It is illegal to work in the US without being paid.  Even if you agree to do so, it is still illegal.

      On the other hand, if you are fired with it taking effect at quitting time, it would be another story.  Don't know of an employer that would be stupid enough to do that, though!

        Perhaps you just haven't looked hard enough? If you can't immediately find one where you work for free, you can surely find one to manipulate you out of insurance, have to correct your paycheck, do the work of 2.5 people everyone else refuses to work for, and be scapegoated during your journey to working for free.

          Didn't say you couldn't find someone - just that it is illegal.  For both employer AND employee.

          As to the rest of it, only a fool would look for something like that, and a bigger one for working there.

      Yes, you should leave the premises.  If you don't leave the premises, there is a strong likelihood that you will be escorted out by security personnel or even the police if you refuse to leave.   Also, once you get fired, kiss future employment opportunities goodbye.  You have killed your career & will have to settle for meager jobs, if that.   You can also become unemployable because no prospective employer is going to hired a person who has been fired from a job as that person is considered to be damaged goods.

        It was a severe workplace mobbing and perpetrators try to ruin and control your employment and references, but about five months was actually considered a record to last working for this particular attorney. This is not generally anywhere near the case in our local legal community, into which slime has slithered.

    It depends on the law of the state in which you work. Most cases, you are fired, given your last paycheck, and escorted off the premises.
