My company has more than 500 employees in Ontario and the business is slowing down recently. It start layoff people this week and offer them temporary layoff.
Can I request for permanent layoff instead of temporary layoff?
I serve in this company more than 12 years and I am now 64 year old.
Please give me advice, thank you!

If you have never been laid off before and your contract doesn't allow the company to do so, then technically they cannot lay you off and this is considered a constructive dismissal.l which would allow you to get a severance package.
