Expert:  Debra replied 2 years ago.
Your legal right is to receive reasonable notice or pay in lieu of notice. Generally, in determining what is reasonable notice Courts look at several factors including the length of time you worked for the employer, your age, your position, the likelihood of finding new employment etc. At the high end, if you were in a managerial position, the Court would likely order one month's notice or pay in lieu of notice for each year of employment.If you were not in a managerial position the Court would order somewhat less. For this reason you should consult with a employment lawyer face to face.
