Severance Pay

I was told about a month ago, that my position will be eliminiated. I keep asking for my lay-off date but they keep dodging me. I work for a non-profit agency and I have seen no literature on serverance pay, but in the past laid-off employees have received a small package.

How is serverance pay determined? Legally are they bound to tell me my lay-off date?

In Wisconsin, at least, unless you are part of a mass layoff, the employer has no responsibility to give you advance notice of your layoff or to pay you severance. If the employer has given prior laid off employees severance, however, you have a better chance.
