The contract which I signed made no provision for severance pay in the event that it was ended early. In fact, the employer ended the contract early, not “for cause” but because of a “change of circumstances.” The employer asks if termination is “acceptable.” With some 90 days remaining on the contract, and given the loss of opportunity cost, I would like to insist of some kind of severance pay. Arbitration is available. Does anyone have any experience making a claim for lost opportunity cost or otherwise by way of severance? I would think that there would be some pattern or practice in these circumstances, even without a severance provision.
