Can an employer change insurance companies in the middle of the year and give the employees less than 2 weeks notice?
Employers usually change their insurance on their renewal date which is anytime of the year. Yours may just have happened to be in the middle of the year. They do not have to give you notice, but even less than two weeks, that's still plenty of time for them to give you information regarding the new plan, what it covers, what your contribution, if any, is going to be. They shouldn't cancel your prior coverage until they get approval from the new company.

An employer must pay you on the normal payday regardless of your notice to quit. In the United States you can contact the Federal Wage and Labor Department in your area and th…e employer could be fined for not paying you.
No, employers are not obligated to offer disability insurance to employees, or even offer sick pay to employees. Individual disability insurance plans are available, and disco…unts are offered if multiple employees get a plan, even if the employer does not pay the premium, but each employee pays for their own policy. Multiple employee discounts vary from 10-45% off, depending on the insurance company, number of employees, gender, long-term or short-term disability policies. For example, an average premium can be as low as $10 per month, for $1000 of monthly benefit. Ask for multiple companies quotes, from an experienced disability insurance independent broker.
Legally, in most situations, an employer cannot "just cancel" any employee's health insurance without notice. A federal law known as ERISA requires 60 days' notice of "materia…l reductions." Courts disagree over whether cancellation is a "material reduction" but all at least agree that concurrent notice (it's still notice to say 'I am canceling your health benefits as of today.') must be given to comply with fiduciary provisions. You should consult an attorney or your local labor board.
It isn't even necessary for an employee, but it is considered polite. As for an employer, they are protected because of their business. If you work an extra 2 weeks (havin…g just received a 2 weeks notice), you could be pissed off enough to not do a good job which would hurt revenue for the company. Some disgruntled employees cause damage on the way out if they are given notice If an employee is being let go "for cause", meaning that he/she did something wrong, the employer is wise to not allow the employee to remain and cause more problems. If the company is just having problems and cutting back, often the employer will not want to take a chance that the employee might sabotage the company in some way. Truth be told, a two weeks notice isn't really necessary for an employee to an employer either. In the US nearly all states have "employment at will" laws which basically state that either the employer or the employee may quit / terminate services for pretty much any rhyme or reason (unless you and the employer have a written contract of employment that stipulates a clearly defined termination of employment process). Most employers require their employees to give written consent to the terms of working in an "at will" workplace as a strict condition of employment (which almost makes a two weeks notice by either party seem rather silly). Only eight states do not have public policy as an exception to at will employment (ignores if an employer sanctioned termination would have violated state / federal law): Alabama, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maine, Nebraska, New York, and Rhode Island. 13 States do not recognize "implied contract exceptions" to at will employment (typically a verbal contract). It is very difficult to prove there was an implied contract, as the burden of proof solely is on the employee. The states do not recognize implied contract exceptions are: Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, and Virginia. 11 States recognize implied in law contracts (good faith and fair dealing) as an exception to at will employment. Basically, the employer must have "just cause" to immediately terminate employment (if the company isn't experiencing a financial hardship). Those states are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Delaware, Idaho, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming.
You see, I have a fine education in business from Dilbert. From what I've seen, as long as you are a main character, you won't get laid off. However, if you are lame, and do n…ot have a quirky personality, than you will probably get fired within a day. Hope this helps.
If an employer terminates you after you give a 2 week notice does he have to pay you for the 2 weeks?
He must pay you for the hours worked, regardless of who terminated the work realtionship or why. He does not have to pay for any hours not worked. If there is vacation …time agreed upon, some states require this to be paid.
Unless you have a contract with your employer that states otherwise, you do not have to give two weeks' notice. However, there are several reasons why you might want to: It's… good form. Giving two weeks' notice demonstrates your professional courtesy and moral character. It may help you receive accrued paid time off. Unless your state is required to pay you accrued paid time off, your employer may decide whether you will receive paid time off at separation. In this circumstance, most employers will only pay accrued PTO to employees who give appropriate formal notice.It may positively affect your "rehire status." When future employers call a previous employer for a reference when you apply for a job, most employers will only share your "rehire status," that is, whether the company would hire you again. Obviously, being "not rehire-able" doesn't look good for you. Failing to give a formal notice gives your employer good reason to make you "not rehire-able." You won't burn bridges. Beyond employer references for future jobs, you may find yourself wishing to return to the company or working with individuals from the company, and leaving suddenly without formal notice isn't going to help your cause.
Unless local laws specify otherwise wherever you live, an employer does not have to give you any notice.
Answer Yes. You can be forced to work overtime without 24 hours notice. If you have a union, check your collective agreement. Most collective agreements prohibit empl…oyers from changing your hours without 24 notice unless they have your agreement. I've posted a link to see the difference between being in a union and not.
If an employer terminates you after you give a 2 week notice does he have pay you for the 2 weeks in Minnesota?
Minnesota is an at will employer state so it means an employer can terminate an employee at any time for any reason. If a person gives their 2 week notice and they are the…n fired they may be able to collect unemployment.

How much notice does an employer have to give an employee when changing their schedule?
No. But they are tied to any kind of regulations(personnel manual or union contract) they have set. Also you should check with the labor laws in your state. There may be… something there. You do have to be paid for the hours you work up until the final date of resignation/termination. The term "gross misconduct" is not generally used lightly. If this is the case you will want to look closely at any personnel rules/regulation manual or contract if you have one.

my employer changed my exemptions without my permission and when I asked for a copy of my w4 they had wrote in numbers that I did not put in. Where do I turn for help ?
Yes, unless you have a contract with them that states otherwise, which you probably do not as most employment is "at will" and may be terminated by you or the company at any t…ime with or without reason.
This may be a trick question, but . . . You give 2 weeks notice 14 days before your last day at work.
