Can you fire an employee the same day they give you their 2 week letter of resignation?
Letter of resignation laws are a bit confusing. Can I ask an employee to leave 5 minutes after they give me their resignation?
According to the law if the employee has given resignation you can't fire him immediately. If you don't want that employee to work in your company from next day, You can simply give him 1-month salary by deducting leaves and his advance amount (if applicable) and you can give him a releasing letter.
As per knowledge, there is no option of firing him without paying. Ultimately you have to him.
If they have given you their resignation, they have resigned and therefore cannot be fired.
If you do not have a good relationship with them or you do not trust them and want them out of your business immediately, you can send them on garden leave.

Hope this helps!
You cannot let them go without pay. Garden Leave means you ask them to leave the business but you have to pay them during that period. This is usually done to protect the business from negative effect of an unhappy employee who is leaving creating a negativity with other staff but also to protect company's data or commercially sensitive information.
Make sure you get their resignation in writing and on file, if you do want to let them go it will have to be paid but also make sure you get that put in writing also and they understand that you will pay them for the two weeks, include the end date the payment for their salary would end and keep this with the resignation.
