Thank you for your question. Your employer can terminate your position for no reason. However, if your employer ends your employment, then generally speaking, the company is going to owe you severance.

If your employer has not confirmed that you have been fired, you should confirm in writing with your manager/supervisor/direct superior whether you may continue coming into work, and whether you still have a job (even if you have done this verbally already, it would be better to do so in writing). If the company does not respond, you can write to them again (ideally by email) confirming that if you do not hear from them by a certain date you will consider yourself to be fired.

However, it would be best if you could call us at the number below to discuss this in more detail.

Please note that any entitlements to wrongful dismissal expire two years after the date you were first given notice of your termination.
