"With cause" refers to major fuck-ups such as sexual harassment, surfing porn at work, stealing stuff, etc. and you get no severance for that. Performance related means that they think you suck at your job, and you do get severance for that. Then there's also getting laid off, which generally gets you even more severance.

All of this assumes that your company pays severance at all, which is not a legal requirement, but any large/respectable company will do to avoid potential lawsuits from disgruntled employees.


Ah ok, right on. Still getting used to this strange new world, where I don't have a contract.This tiny place I work for (~25 employees) definitely pays no severance. Given how regularly people get fired, that'd eat up way to big a chunk of their budget. Anyhow, I do kinda suck at my job, but fortunately not so much they have had security walk me out yet. Trying to keep it that way for another 58 days.

Here in Canada, as far as I know, fired for cause includes being fired for bad performance. There is only the distinction between a layoff and a firing. Layoff=severance, firing=no severance

Unemployment benefits =! severance. You get unemployment unless you are an extreme fuckup

Unemployment comes from gov't though, severance comes from company.


Right. Mostly I'm just disappointed that your comment wasn't a joke about severed hands.

ETA: oops, CaptainJapan made the original severance comment. Anyway I say less 0L law talk, more talking about Hand getting severed

Gave my job notice that I'll be leaving them at the end of July. These three months are going to feel very long.

here unemployment is called Employment Insurance which I think sounds much more pleasant.

WTF do you do if your company's HR is so incompetent as to not respond to multiple emails requesting information on how to quit and informing them you are quitting in 2 weeks?

It would be humorous if I didn't want to quit so badly...

Did you already talk to your boss? Normally you would tell your boss and they handle the HR nonsense.

Write a letter of resignation and email it to your boss. CC HR. That'll definitely cover your butt till they get back to you.

1. Send them an anthrax letter
2. Burn the building to the ground
3. Go on a spree killing in the office

Wow, remarkably close to what actually happened.... Except steps 2 and 3 were reversed.
