Add Comment Question: I was dismissed from my job 2 days shy of my probation. My boss kept telling me I was doing a great job. The director of HR disclosed to another manager they advised against any dismissal. Do I have a leg to stand on? My boss had been demoted from her current position just prior to my dismissal. Answer: Thank you for your question. You may have entitlements to severance even though you only worked a short period of time. Please visit www.severancepaycalculator.com, and then if it shows you being owed more than you were offered (if anything), give us a call to schedule a consultation. Kindly note the limitation period of two years from the date you are notified of your termination.
