Add Comment Question: My company sold the assets to our Biggest competitor and are not taking the staff. I am on disability for having cancer. When they close Dec 0112020 do they have to give me a severance package for the 25 years with them? Answer: Thank you for your question. Yes, they do have to pay you severance (as much as 24 months) unless they find a way to keep you employed. If you don't get severance or get less than what you are owed, please give us a call.
