I was fired for a cause without severance pay. Do I still qualify for pay and unemployment insurance?
Thank you

Thank you for your question. Given that you were wrongfully dismissed, you are owed severance. You should also be able to access EI benefits. I would encourage you to visit the severance pay calculator our firm has developed to see what you are entitled to ( I would also encourage you to call us to book a consultation with one of our employment law specialists at our Ottawa office.
