Report: Gazillion Firing Staff; Ending Marvel Heroes Even Earlier

Developer Gazillion last week confirmed plans to end Marvel Heroes, saying the comic-inspired action/RPG would end at the end of the year. Now PCGamesN has word that the game may be ending sooner than that. Their initial report included word that all of the company's employees were let go, saying the company is not issuing any benefits after creditors pulled the funding plug. They cite employee tweets confirming this, and follow-up with an update sharing an alleged internal email that supports that story, and also says that the game's last day will be tomorrow, rather than December 31st. Word from the email is: "The bank has decided not to pursue any course of action that sees Gazillion meaningfully continue into the New Year and this requires that the company terminate its workforce."

That sucks. It's one thing to be told the party's over, it's last call, get your shit together soon... But then you're sacked 5 weeks early with no severance or anything? Time to lawyer up, if there's anyone left to sue.

It's pointless. Employees are always last to get anything if anything is left. That's something the law should have been changed on, everywhere, long ago. The reality is you can be terminated at any time without notice and there's sweet FA you can do about it. The only time a labor lawyer will do anything is if you're an exec and you have stock, etc.
Here in UK the employees are 2nd in the queue, only secured creditors are in front of them - though this is usually a major creditor (the bank loan) with security over the major asset (property).
