I’d tell them sooner rather than later if you don’t want to burn bridges.

I doubt anyone is expecting you to cancel your vacation just because you are also leaving the company.

I would wait and give them your two weeks as soon as you get back.

Edit: if you wait then I would actually work the two weeks after you got back. If you don’t want to stay those two extra weeks tell them before you leave.

If you don’t want to sever all ties, give them two weeks’ notice. Of course, you do run the risk of them asking you to not work out your notice period, but if they choose to do that, they ought to owe you some severance pay.

So whether it makes them appreciative or not, 2 weeks (aka before vacation) would be best. At least, if you worked in my company.

@mandanjoe:  I would give them notice sooner, that way maybe they have a chance to hire someone while you are gone. Especially with it being holiday time, I think a little extra notice would be appreciated.

If you are looking to be self employed any how…

I agree with @hollyberry4: just give them your 2 weeks notice when you get back from Vacation.

In most situations when you resign, they’ll let you work the 2 weeks… in the rare instance they’ll ask you to just go

Two more weeks salary, isn’t a bad thing… especially if you are looking to begin your own Biz.

PS… And oh ya, if anyone asked about the situation.

I’d say that you’ve been thinking of starting your own business for awhile… and when you were on vacation you decided it was time to do it and stop putting it off.

You want to start 2014 from a new perspective.

@mandanjoe:  definitely put it in writing and send them and email. But if you have a close relationship with you boss, I’d also call and have a personal conversation about it
