My dad, Wayne Whitmore was laid off in October as his work went into creditor protection. He was there 32 years and is 71 years old. He was one of the longest employees in the warehouse.

He found out the company - Wallace and Carey was bought by another company, 7-11. He was paid 2 weeks plus vacation time owed.

With the recent purchase of the company would he be or could he be entitled to any severance? I am still annoyed he was let go when there was others with less seniority.

It is very likely that your father is entitled to more severance, probably upwards of 24 months of pay. I strongly recommend that he connect with someone from our intake team to schedule a consultation with one of our lawyers.
