No notice of termination - Severance Pay?


I hope that you can answer my question? I was informed at 4.45pm on a Monday 07/25 that I had to be "let go" because finances were tight and they could no longer afford to pay me. I was given no notice and was told I wasn't required to work the rest of the week. Am I entitled to Severance Pay?

Thank you - Jenny Allen

There is no legal right to severance; just unemployment compensation


Unless your employer has a severance plan on the books, you are only entitled as a matter of law to receive unemployment compensation benefits. Make sure that you apply for unemployment right away, since you lose it if you do not.

Best regards,
