Hi Debra, just give me a moment to read the comment I am looking at as it is similar to my girlfriends situation

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

My gf had an accommodation and was recently terminated without cause. They did offer her a severance package. She working in the non-profit sector and was with the company 16 months

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

It was a full time position. She showed for work and was terminated on Monday last

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Just that we have not gone onto the service canada website to check the ROE code they issued.
