Employed 6 mths , employer verbally mentioned 'performance' however letter gave me 1 wk severance, 2 wks gratuitous, 2.5 vacation days. if I can prove numbers were met - what would be target payout?

Thank you for your question. Before you accept the company's offer, you absolutely need legal advice from an employment lawyer. Even with only 6 months of service, your severance may be in the range of 3-4 months, depending on your age, position and whether you had any terms in your employment contract that effectively limit your severance entitlements. Please give us a call right away to discuss your situation in more detail. We would be happy to assist in any way we can.
