It is your task to find work after your position is terminated. The court considers your efforts, but will also subtract whichever income earned throughout the reasonable notice period from the awarded amount.
For example: If you only got eight weeks notice prior to termination when you were entitled to 8 months notice, the court will calculate the amount you could have earned at a different job and award damages accordingly.
