Sticky Situation: The Quitter

What’s your two-week notice policy?



The Situation: Your therapist just quit, and in a not-so-amicable manner. Do you accept their two weeks notice or let them go instantly?

The Solution: “If someone quits, especially in anger or a heated moment, it’s best to get rid of them that day,” says Scott Kerschbaumer, co-owner of ESSpa Kozmetika Organic Skin Care in Pittsburgh and ESSpa at the Carnegie Inn & Spa in State College, Pennsylvania. “We usually don’t take two weeks notice. I don’t want to risk having them around for two weeks only to distribute their information to clients in attempt to take their business from us, or saying negative things about the spa. It’s safer to just let them go immediately.”
