After three months of consecutive employment an employee may be eligible for compensation, written working notice, or a combination of the two as follows:
- After three months – one week
- After 12 months – two weeks
- After three years – one week for each completed year of employment, to a maximum of eight weeks
No severance pay is required when an employee quits, retires or is terminated for just cause. It is up to the employer to show termination was for just cause.
Additional notice or pay is required if 50 or more employees are terminated within a two-month period at a single location.
