My brother worked for 29 years in a day care. He was told six months in advance that the day care will be closing. He worked via contract. So each year they negotiated his contact. He was told he was not entitled to severance as he was given six months notice that the day care was closing. He has been out of work for 8 months.

Thank you for your question. My name is Jon Pinkus and I am an employment lawyer at Samfiru Tumarkin LLP.

Your brother is entitled to much more than that. Six months is never going to be adequate for an employee who worked for an employer continuously for 29 years, regardless of whether new "contracts" were negotiated each year.

Please email me at and we can talk about what your brother is entitled to in this situation.

I would be pleased to assist.
