A complete answer to this would require additional information, so this response is more general, but will guide you in the right direction. First, an employer has an implicit right to terminate any non-unionized employee at any time without providing a reason (barring any issues giving rise to human rights discrimination). The only obligation on the employer in this regard is to provide a proper termination/severance notice. Therefore, an employee's good performance is not a guarantee for ongoing employment. The employer's offer for another position in the company or severance package is not necessarily unfair provided the content of the offers is fair. I assume you would accept the alternative role if it makes sense to you personally. Respecting the appropriateness of the severance package, it would again depend on a number of factors: is there an applicable employment contract which stipulates your entitlement on termination, whether the termination clause in the employment contract is lawful and enforceable, whether the employment contract itself is lawful and enforceable, what are your rights under the Employment Standards Act (in Ontario) or another applicable provincial/federal legislation, your rights under common law, if applicable etc. The analysis required to determine your legal rights on termination can become quite complex depending upon the specific circumstances of the employment relationship and it's one area where a consultation with an employment lawyer is worthwhile.
