Hi Legal Aficionados,
So I was curious about what my rights are under a certain circumstance; I am in no such danger and don't plan to ever be; but would be useful to know the limits of my rights. Anyhow so the question is:
IF the company decides to downsize in this new legal entity and lays me off. For lay-off compensation reasons am I
a ) new employee with very little benefit
b ) a ~13 year veteran with a significant severance package?
To draw a parallel, if I was still in USA I would get some non-ignorable sum in severance package.
I am trying to understand what it means to have this new contract. What kind of protections it does give the company, and what it does give to me.
Not sure if there is any previous court case where an international transfer had to fight for severance package. Anybody have a clue?
