I am 67 and when I retired at age 60 I wanted such employment with benifits. I accepted this job with very low pay per hour but with a good benifit package, now due to health issue and medication costing over $30,000 per yr. My employer has informed me they will no longer provide benifits with nothe even any compensation in Lue of. Obviously this is a HUGE financial hit and not affording medication a large health impact.
I was laid off with no return date. Was given no notice and no pay in lieu of notice. I asked why and was told they don't have to unless I am laid off Longer than 32 weeks. I know they have no intention of bringing me back. I am paid $350 weekly salary and earn commissions ( car sales). They are now saying they will pay me my weeks pay in lieu of notice but are only willing to pay my salary!! I believe that I am entitled to my normal weekly pay including commissions?

I received a letter advising me of my termination. They say in the letter that I am being laid off due to organizational changes. My last day of work they advised me will be Dec 22, but they have not offered me anything. Am I entitled to any severance? I have been with the company for 2 years. They only said my final pay will be on Dec 29 and I will be paid out any vacation time as well.
I was terminated without cause and given the following. 1-week pay, holiday pay and an additional $2500 if I sign a release form. I was given 7 days to sign (22 nov is the last day) in which 2 of them were a weekend. They appear to have paid the full amounts into my bank account but cannot 100% confirm as my access to ADP payroll has been removed. I worked for the company for approx 11 months, 55 years old base was 75K plus shift pay approx 9k 20 plus years experienced Technology Professional. Company head office is Ontario do i have to sign the release and is it normal for a company to pay the full amount before a signed release (the money deposited in my account is close to the full amount set out in the termination notice) or am i entitled to far more compensation then they have offered ?
