Pro Bono activities - legal opinion to readers

As part of the ongoing cooperation with the reputable daily nation newspaper Pravda, we were approached to provide a legal opinion for a reader who got into financial trouble. As several options are possible, we have tried to design this assessment in general in order to help other readers who find themselves in a similar situation and to find out the necessary information about the possibility of entitlement to severance pay and severance grant.

Question from the reader:

The husband worked for 14 years in one company. He became ill and was registered as temporarily unable to work for 12 months. The doctor advised him to apply for an invalidity pension, so he had to terminate his employment. Is the husband entitled to severance pay?

Legal opinion:
