Severance pay is typically “designed” and has criteria. In some cases a company actually has a documented policy regarding how to qualify and how much is paid. BUT asking is free. Just ask.

Talk to an employment attorney familiar with the relevant laws in your area.

Having processed severance pay in the past it’s usually based on years of service.
