Legal Question in Employment Law in Minnesota

I have a question on Employment Law.

I live in Oregon, but my company is based in MN.

I signed an employment contract which I am entitled to 2 months notice prior to termination.

My employer terminated me without cause, and said they were going to waive the 2 months notice and make the termination effective immediately.

Asked for my computer, and phone, said I could not contact clients or work on their behalf.

They are now telling me that instead of paying my 2 months in 1 payment, they are going to pay as if I was an employee, over the next 2 months.

I can include a copy of my employment agreement, in which the only mention of timeframe is that I am to be paid within 10 business days.

They also told me that during the "termination" period I have to still help them with any questions that they ask about clients etc.

Seems like this is not legal?
