    Hi Glenn,
    we have a seasonal student, his seasonal letter was dated the same day he started (mistake number 1), he worked spring, summer, fall and when the season ended with one company product (soil) he was asked to continue working the sister company product (salt) for the winter season. The seasonal letter is below.
    What rights does the seasonal employee have regarding if the company terminates? Please advise what other issues the company has.

    From our payroll expert, short but sweet and I hope, helpful:
    At least one week’s notice or wages in lieu of notice. The related companies are taken to be a single employer and he wasn’t employed for a specific term or specific task.
