2 weeks’ notice is perceived to be a good balance between attempting to give the employer enough time to transition work without incurring an undue burden on a resignee’s plans or activities. In some countries or regions such as Australia, giving a certain amount of weeks’ notice can be mandatory in some circumstances.
Some people may decide to give the employer no notice when their relations reached rock bottom. The organization may also prefer to end the relationship ASAP if it perceives the employee’s continual activities to be detrimental to its ongoing operations (e.g. security concerns).
Other people and employers may like to have more than 2 weeks’ notice to ensure that they are given enough time to hire, document and transition activities from the resignee. It is usually more common for managers and executives to give a longer notice period since they may be more likely to be at the organization for longer, having accrued more knowledge of the organization and having a more sizeable impact on personnel and company strategy.
