How do you calculate severance pay correctly?

There is a common perception that severance pay is equal to one week’s salary, two weeks’ salary, or one week for each year an employee has been employed by a company.

The reality is that severance pay for non-union workers in Canada is calculated using several factorsincluding age, employment, position, bonuses, benefits and your ability to find new employment.

Non-union members in Canada have up to two years after the date of dismissal to claim appropriate severance pay. The deadline for an employer to sign a severance offer is not legally enforceable or binding.
