How long do I need to keep looking for work?

Even despite best efforts, there are times when the job search can feel absolutely hopeless and you may just want to walk away. Do not despair! A frustrating job market could work in your favour when it comes to your termination settlement. 

While your employer may be legally obligated to pay until you could ‘reasonably’ be able to find new work according to your circumstances, the fact that you cannot find new work will not be held against you if you can prove that you’re making a valiant effort. If you intentionally stop looking for a long period, or if you’re refusing to apply for jobs that are well within your skills and capabilities, it will be harder for us to make your case. However, if you keep applying, keep interviewing, and are still coming up empty handed then we routinely use that information as proof that you are deserving of your notice period.
