I was layed off from AECOM may 27th 2026 and didn't receive

Customer Question

I was layed off from AECOM may 27th 2026 and didn't receive any severance pay at all. Their policy shows they should pay me 10 weeks pay because I had 15 years service
JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?
Customer: Wyoming
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No lawyer yet, this information was just brought to my attention
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: The company is a welding shop that was bought out by AECOM, all our benefits "401" and insurance were AECOM.
JA: Employment law can be complex. But don't worry -- you're in good hands. The attorneys have a lot of experience with this, and it would be my pleasure to match you with the best fit.
Customer: Would love to find out if I can get this as the economy is hurting and I am having hard time finding work.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Employment Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

You say their policy shows they should have paid you 10 weeks severance pay. What does the policy say exactly? Does it provide a guarantee? I very much look forward to helping you on this matter.
