I worked for my company for 5 years. After that I have been on STD for 6 month and then on LTD for 3 years. My colleague just told me that my company is going to outsource my department by the end of the year and lay off the employees.
My questions are:
What is going to happen with my position?
Can they lay me off while on LTD?
If yes how much severance will they offer?
Can I still sue my company for laying me off while on LTD?
What are the best options for me in this situation?
Thank you for your responses!
P.S. Should I contact my LTD coordinator at work to ask her about the details?
Re #3, you should be offered the same severance as the rest of your group, at a minimum the statutory severance required by your provincial employment standards act. Unfortunately this severance might be deducted from your LTD depending on what your policy says. They may also decide it is not worth the risk to lay you off, so for now I would check what your policy says and wait and see.
