Can I Quit Based on the Company Handbook or do I Have To Give 2 Weeks Notice?

Hi everyone,

Just wanted some guidance on this:

If my job’s handbook says “Employees are requested to give [Company] written notice of their resignation as far in advance as possible, but not less than two (2) weeks before their intended resignation


“[Company] adheres to the policy of employment-at-will. This means that regardless of any provision in this employee handbook, either the employee or [Company] is permitted to terminate the employment relationship at any time, for any reason, or no reason at all, with or without cause or notice. Nothing in this employee handbook, nor any other policy or written or verbal communication by a supervisor or any officer is intended to either create any type of contract of employment or guarantee of benefits, nor limit the right to terminate employment-at-will.” Can I quit without a notice? Obviously I can, but without breaking rules.

I’m trying to leave in the best way/best terms possible despite hating my job since it’s the first one in my actual field.
