Non-managerial workers employed for less than 90 days are not entitled to prior notice or any severance pay;

Similarly, non-managerial employees who have worked anywhere from 91 to 179 days are entitled to payment in lieu of any accrued holiday;

Non-managerial staff who have been employed for more than a year are entitled to two weeks’ notice or two weeks’ wages in lieu of notice, as well as two weeks’ wages for every year worked, up to 24 years;

Employees engaged in managerial or supervisory roles are entitled to at least an entire month’s prior notice or payment in lieu of notice, with a month’s pay for every year worked, capped at 48 years’ compensation.
