Calculation of severance payment

Hi,

due to increasing costs I’m presently reducing staff. As I understood from the Airlinesim Wiki, the severance payment per each employee dismissed is three times the average weekly salary of an employee. What I noticed: When I recently dismissed some employees from network planning, AS$ 5400.- per each employee became due for payment. However: the average weekly salary for such an employee in South Africa is AS$ 907.- only so the actually paid severance payment is about six times the average weekly salary! Did I overlook or misunderstand something or does the calculation within the system not work properly? Looking forward to an enlightenment.

Kind regards

its correct, they get six wages, but not from the average country salary

its a predefined wage from AS, but i dont know exactly how much it is

Hi,

thanks so far. So the source I looked into was most probably wrong. That’s going to be an expensive adventure…
