One week per year. If you are over 40 you are in a protected class so a lawyer may be able to get you more.

What CD 1 said - but if the severance is related to discrimination, workplace bullying, ageism, etc. etc. you can negotiate a much bigger # in exchange for signing something that says you won't ever sue them.

But if you’ve been there any less than 365 days they’ll default to 1 week and usually won’t rip you.
