    Default Should I Get a Severance Package

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: VA

    My team got disbanded at my work location so everyone got a severance package... except for me. That is because I resigned two weeks ago and my last day is tomorrow. I feel that I should get a severance as well because we all have the same last day. Should I get a severance package?

    As you indicated, you quit before this decision was made and thus don't qualify for severance.

    And even if you hadn't quit, your company isn't legally required to give you a severance package, even if it gives a package to everyone else.

    It is rare in the extreme for someone who quits to get severance.
