Termination without cause

Hello,
I've just had my contract terminated without cause and I would like to know your opinion on it.
As I've been working for the company for 11 months I received 1 week of payment in lieu of notice. This they said is what complies with the minimum applicable employment standards legislation.
My termination clause in the contract never excitedly says how much notice I would get just "You will receive the minimum notice (or pay in lieu) and minimum severance (if any) to which you are entitled under applicable employment standards legislation.".

Thanks,
J

Depends on a number of factors including whether you're a contract or full time employee, which province, etc. If you happen to be located in Ontario, this might help you.

That means that if you should get terminated, they would pay you what the employment standards are in the particular province you are in. Typically if that is different, that is negotiated at the time you sign the contract, if not, the provincial labour standards apply.

If you put in enough insurable hours, you should look into applying for EI asap, delaying this can affect the amount of benefits and the length of your claim. The amount you received as payment will be calculated into how much you receive from EI. It will be indicated on your ROE
