What is the name of your state?
(I am domiciled in Missouri)

I turned in my two weeks notice yesterday - stating that I intended to vacate my position and resign in two weeks time.

My Question is - If I am asked to leave before the two weeks is up, is my company required to compensate me for those two weeks? My company has a history of doing this (sensitive info, paranoia, or whatever). I have no corretive actions or anything else, I have a clean file. Also, if they do ask me to leave, and if they are required to pay me for the remaining time, what should I do to ensure that this happens?

Thanks for any advice in advance.

NO, your employer has no obligation to pay you for hours NOT worked.... and can release you at will... even during your 'two week' notice.
