Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.

No, unfortunately, as an at-will employee, your employer isn't obligated to give you a compensation or severance package in addition to regular pay.

However, if your employer needs your assistance to close the business, you would be in a good bargaining position to request additional compensation from your employer.
