    Red face I have worked there for.

    'I have worked there for two years.' Does the sentence mean 'I still work here'?

    "I have worked there for two years" implies that you still work there.
    "I worked there for two years" implies that you no longer work there.

    Usually, yes, but not always- if the person has just been sacked and is angry, the present perfect would still work.
