I have been working for a company 8 months now. I was temporary laid off in april due to covid then recently terminated. They only are giving me one week severance. I have looked into it and I really should be getting about a month or so. Just wanting yan opinion before I go further.

Hello and thank you for your question.

Your full severance entitlements are certainly more than one week. However, it is possible that your entitlements are limited if you signed an employment agreement with enforceable language. To make this assessment, we would have to set up a consultation so that we may review your contract. Just so you know, many contracts are drafted with illegal language that would enable us to pursue your full entitlements.

Please contact us at the number below so we can arrange some time with you. We would be happy to assist however we can.
