Normally the amount of severance pay is calculated based on the most recent past several weeks (8 in this example). What if there is an upcoming major change to the employees schedule right around the time of him being terminated without cause?
For example, Bob has worked for a company 2 days per week for the past 6 months. He recently accepted a full time position with the company (and as a result, quits his other part time job). Shortly after switching to full time, he is terminated without cause. Would Bob be entitled to severance just based on the 2 days a week or could it be argued that the severance should be based on the full time hours? Does having quit his other job to work full time have any bearing?
