So, I was just offered a job at another firm. My direct report is out on PTO tomorrow, so I plan to give notice Thursday 12/21, for my last day to be Friday, January 5. Technically about 2 weeks given Christmas and New Years. New company needs me to start on January 8 as that's when their orientation is for the month of January. They need me to start asap.
My problem, our office is closed the week between Christmas and New Years. There is nothing in the company handbook that states two "business" weeks or anything about discounting holidays. The firm I'm going to is NOT closed the same week, so that's a business week for them, and most other companies.
Am I still giving 2 weeks' notice putting in on Thursday 12/21 for my last day to be 1/5 with the office being closed the first week of my notice period?
I feel bad, but I can't risk missing this amazing opportunity.
