I worked somewhere for 1.5yrs and they let me go without reason; do they owe me severance pay as well as 2 weeks in lieu of notice (I live in Toronto, Ontario)

To get a sense of what you are owed, I would encourage you to visit the severance pay calculator our firm has developed ( I would also encourage you to call us directly and book a call with one of our employment lawyers.
