If you are laid off (downsized) probably, if you are fired (for cause), then I would doubt it.

Laid off =\= getting fired No severance if you're fired with cause

Fired for cause either requires a policy violation (expensing dinners on Thursday nights at home) or long term non performance against a performance improvement plan. Anything else pretty is grey and the firm will avoid lawsuits by giving severance.

Correct Pdubs1

I bet they do. Otherwise, opening itself up for lawsuits.

So they do pay you? Mixed feedback here.

If you are fired for performance I don't think so. If you are laid off due to low utilization then yes. You should get severance.

If being fired for performance coincides with layoffs and downsizing, you should get severance and can potentially even sue for wrongful dismissal. Companies give different reasons to different employees, often randomly, to get around WARN laws (google it) .

What's the severance package

You get paid to leave if your malingering existence matters. Does it?

How much severance is considered reasonable?

So I love my fiance with all my heart. He's the most patient, caring, loving man. Our wedding is planned for some time end of next year. But he just got recently laid off and doubts started to creep in again. He has always worked, but always in a dead end kind of job. And this job was his first "professional" job and now that's out the window. While I trust in his potential, he's not dumb or anything. He's a bit slow (not very aggressive, quiet). I just keep climbing up the ladder so the gap is
