Ordinarily, an employee is not entitled to severance
pay on the termination of his employment. Similarly, employers are not
ordinarily required to provide their employees with two weeks notice before
firing them, though longer warning periods may be required for mass layoffs by
larger employers. However, the employee and employee may agree otherwise.
Employees should refer to their employer's policy with respect to severance
pay. Severance pay plans provided by an employer pursuant to the Employee
Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 are subject to federal law.
