Hanesbrands states the workers were “probationary”, which would mean they would not qualify for severance pay as they are not yet regular. However the workers have been working in the company for more than six months - the maximum that a worker can be probationary – so they should qualify for severance. This was part of the grievances of the workers. The workers said that they accepted the holiday pay and 13th month pay, but were not paid severance as management argued that they were probationary not regular. In the end, the workers decided not to contest that in the courts.
