After I left I would report him to the IRS.  He’s using nonprofit resources for his son to run a for profit business?  I believe the IRS frowns on that.

adnama :  Congrats on the offer!!!! Way to go!

Give a written two week notice. If he asks why – tell him the truth!

I’d let your boss know exactly what he is losing and why.

adnama :  I would proceed as though your current employer wasn’t a complete ass. Give them two weeks notice. Take the high road. Will you ever need anyone at your current job as a reference?

Perhaps a seriously unpopular opinion, but I’d bring a box with me to work tomorrow (pack my stuff) and give him an immediate, verbal notice that I’m walking out the door…now. Any bridge between me and a shit show is definitley worth burning down and roasting marshmallows over, imho. 

Congratulations on the new offer OP and very best wishes for a positive experience!

I’d do the pay roll, give them your passwords, forward your emails to your boss, and say see ya later tomorrow.

Congratulations on the new positions! So glad this worked out for you. Let your current boss know what a pompous douchebag he is with a big fat middle finger.
Or, more appropriately, give the one week written notice – they did you no favors so don’t worry about not giving the full 2-weeks. Stuff em!

Maybe see if you can get a written reference from the supervisor before you leave.

What you’re doing sounds very professional, OP, and if one week is all that you can give them, that seems generous of you given the situation.

I’d be tempted in your place to just send your boss a text message full of of middle finger emojis and the message “I QUIT SUCKAZZZZZZ”… but that’s probably not the most dignified way to go about this.

Seriously, a boss who expects you to find your own replacement, talks shit about you behind your back, and body shames you? F that business. Congrats on the new job!

I would go to work tomorrow and tell your boss you quit and leave and then you can have a nice week off before starting your new job. Good Luck!

You owe this d*uche nothing.  I am not even sure I would give a weeks notice.  If you can swing it, I would go to work tomorrow, and at about 4pm start packing up my stuff, and say see ya!  And have a nice week off before starting your new job.  And def report him.  I know an accountant for the CRA that deals with business and fraud  cases and they definitely take all reoprts seriously.
