May my boss legally forbid me from telling anyone goodbye before I leave the company?
Working as a manager, I gave two weeks' notice in writing yesterday. Though I put it to her in a very different way, I am leaving because my boss doesn't treat people ethically and in the long run it's going to be bigger trouble which I want no part of. Even so, out of consideration for the impact my leaving will have on my team and clients and the big project the company is working on, I consulted my boss informally about my exact last date of work before submitting in writing. She then told me they would write the announcement themselves and send it after I had left. Don't say anything to anybody.
I said I didn't understand and gave reasons why I would want to say goodbye and why it would make sense for our specific business, too. She repeated firmly that the company lets people know if I am leaving and I do not.
