I am a writer. I work in an office of privately owned company. I was “temporarily” laid off with no severance or notification. Can I be temporarily laid off without a prior written agreement. This was never discussed and I certainly never agreed to such a thing.
Unless you have a contract which allows the company to lay you off, they cannot do so and you can choose to treat the lay off as a constructive dismissal entitling you to severance.
