*after 12 consecutive months of employment – two weeks' pay, and
*after three consecutive years – three weeks' pay, plus one week's pay for each additional year of employment to a maximum of eight weeks.
The employer is not required to pay compensation if a worker is given <span class="noglossary">advance</span> written notice of termination equal to the number of weeks for which the employee is eligible. This notice must be in writing.
If you work for an employer for three months or less, they can let you go without giving you notice or extra pay. If you work more than three months, the employer must give you notice in writing before your job ends or must pay you ''compensation''. Under the ''Employment Standards Act'', there’s a minimum amount of notice (or pay) your employer must give you, depending on how long you’ve been in the job. You may be entitled to more than the minimum, because the notice you get must be “reasonable.” Whether you are entitled to the minimum or a larger amount will also depend on your employment contract . :'''For example:''' Chui worked in a large store for four months. After Christmas, her employer said, "Today is your last day." She gave Chui one week’s extra pay.
