    I was told we get a severance package in the event of termination. Is this true?

    What do you think you would be entitled upon termination?

    You should get unpaid sick, personal, and vacation days. If you have a 401(k) you have options with that as well.

    I was accidentally terminated many years ago and was cut a pretty good sized check. Many thousands of Dollars. i guess it depends on how many years you have in.

    Worked Saturday Air and the sup entered my hours with the Hub when I was a Center employee. When payroll could not find me under a Hub ID they just assumed I had quit(so the story goes). Everything was fine until I did not receive paid Holiday hours and the wife and kids were being refused at Doctors visits because my insurance was no longer valid. No longer funny. It was finally straightened out after a lot of phone calls.

    How does a mix-up like that warrant a settlement?

    Our LP guy escorts certain people out of the building sometimes as part of a severance package. Sometimes they get to ride in a police car!

    What settlement? UPS was just clearing the books. I had already earned vacation and optional days and whatever else as this happened towards the end of the year. I too was very surprised at the size of the check.
