Can I accept am employees resignation on the date given even if they give a two week notice?

In Wisconsin would I need to pay them for the two week notice if I let them leave immediately,?

In Wisconsin, an employer must pay employees who quits or resigns employment or who is discharged or terminated all wages due by no later than the date on which the employee regularly would have been paid under the employer’s established payroll schedule.

You can discharge an employee the day that they hand in their notice. If the employee has been a problem he should be shown the door that day. They will probably be unproductive for the last two weeks, can do damage, or can take trade secrets with them. Literally, you do not have to pay for any time an employee does not work, that includes an exempt employee.

However, if you do pay the employee for the two week resignation period, it sends a message to all employees that the company is fair and does not promote the irate employees position for leaving. So it us basically up to you if you let the employee go and not pay for time not worked.
