Good day
If you leave while on lay-off for another job, you are deemed to have quit and would not be entitled to severance.
And since you are on law-off, there is no notice period required for you to give.
Please let me know if you require anything further
Customer
Thanks! Also, for s as libertarian labour law during COVID, what is the time frame for my employer to advise a recall to work or offer severance? It’s been 12 weeks with zero conversation so far.

There is no prescribed time frame. These are unprecedented times.
Even in normal times, companies that are seasonal will lay off for 4 or 5 months.
