An employee who has been temporarily “laid off” may be entitled to treat the layoff as a permanent termination and claim notice and severance payments and other compensation.

Temporary layoffs may not be permitted unless there is employment contract that specifically allows for such layoffs. Seek legal advice to determine your rights and entitlements if you have been “laid off.”
