With quiet quitting going viral on social media, specifically TikTok, it makes sense why this is such a necessary question.

If you are fed up with a job, you should be able to leave whenever you see fit.

However, jobs have so much power nowadays, can your employer actually force you to not quit?

What is Quiet Quitting?


This is not a new thing. It just simply has a name now.

It is essentially when you are fed up with your job so you decide that you will do the least amount of work to get by.

Personio says that,

"Quiet quitting is when employees continue to put in the minimum amount of effort to keep their jobs, but don't go the extra mile for their employer."

Again, not a new concept, just simply a new way of looking at it.

Can Your Job Legally Stop You From Quitting in Michigan?


If you did not know, Michigan is an employment-at-will state.

Baker Donelson says that,

"Michigan is an employment-at-will state, which means that, in the absence of a written employment agreement or a collective bargaining agreement, either the employer or the employee can terminate employment for any reason that is not contrary to law."

So just like your employer can fire you without any justification, they cannot stop you from leaving either.

However, giving a certain amount of notice, such as two weeks is always customary.

If that is not your speed, Business News Daily says that,

"Despite work etiquette and standards, no laws require employees to give any notice whatsoever - let alone two weeks - before quitting."
