I've had contracts that said they didn't have to give me any notice
whatsoever, but I had to give them 2 weeks--even though this is a right to
work state which technically means no one has to give anyone anything. I
don't worry about it but consider it fair warning. I always give reasonable
notice, and once or twice jumped when the work dried up but before they
noticed. Of course, now that I'm a "captive" again for the first time in
many years, I'm looking forward to the whole thing being a non-issue... she
said hopefully. This health insurance deal is pretty nice!
