Add Comment Question: If an employer terminates an employee based on frustration of contract, would severance still apply based on the severance pay calculator? Thank you. Answer: No, it would be only the minimum amount of severance (much less). That said, just because the company terminated for frustration, doesn't mean they were legally allowed to do that.
