How much severance am I owed for getting sacked without warning?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I would be very grateful for some counsel.

I was let go from my company yesterday with no formal warning or one month's notice. Additionally, I was sacked 7 days (5 working days and two weekend days) after the salary cut off point. I was due to complete my full year in 2 weeks from the day I was sacked.

I was promised two months' severance, 1 month for letting me go, another 1 for no prior notice. That seems fair seeing I didn't see out the year.

 

Should I also be paid some form of severance for no official warning, and the 7 extra days I worked after the salary cut off point? 

 

Thank you for your advice.

You fail to mention which country you. Were employed in are we to assume you were employed in Thailand

You are entitled to one full pay cycle of notice. 

If you are paid monthly then it's equivalent of 30 days and as you were let go 5 days into a new paycycle you are entitled to the rest of that paycycle with your 30 days starting at the end of that period. 

 

So two months would be the legal requirement in this case and that is what they have offered you. 

 

Had they terminated your employment on the last day of the month then your notice would have started immediately and you would only be entitled to 30 days. 

 

You didn't say why you were let go,  but of course they do need to have cause to terminate your employment.  

 

If you want to confirm the severance required or any other issues then contact the office of labour protection and welfare. 

สำนักงานสวัสดิการและคุ้มครองแรงงาน

 

They are actually really helpful.

In the US employees are employed "at will" which means you can get let go and paid at minimum until the last day you worked. Reality sucks and then you die.

The OP is posting in the phuket forum from a Phuket IP so presumably that is where he was employed

You obviously know more than what the OP has posted so why don't you let us all know.

 

But based on whats been posted he/she is entitled to 1 month termination (assuming 30 day pay cycle and marched on with immediate effect) pay and 1 months severance.
