Default 2 week notice

Hi , I have another question. Lets say that i found a job and I need to give 2 week notice that I'm leaving my current job. What’s the worst that could happen if I don't give a notice but just leave?

Thanks

I wouldn't leave without a proper notice and I think it's smart for you not to do it either. If it's critical for you to leave earlier than talk to your boss and ask him if he is OK with it.

I wouldn't do that. If you already found another job it shouldn't be a problem to start in two weeks. Every employer knows that this is a standard procedure. If you leave without notice it can cause some legal problems, or they won't pay you your last check and it is not ethical. What will your future employer think of you if leave like that - that you can do the same again. Think about it.

I have done it before. It didnt feel good but I had to get out of there NOW.
Really it doesnt matter. I didnt have any annual leave owing or anything.

If you want to be paid out though, I think you need to give proper notice.

I want to quote Lana because if I'm your future employer I will think exactly the same. One should give a proper notice, it is just not ethical the other way.
