My name is David Vaughan and I am an employment lawyer with Samfiru Tumarkin. The company should not have terminated your employment for cause based on your refusal to agree to a schedule change. Therefore, you should receive severance pay. Please visit the severance calculator ( for an estimate of your severance entitlements and contact our firm to discuss the matter in more detail.
