    The payment when people lose their job is severance pay/package, people shorten the term:

    The word severance itself means separation. In employment, it's the separation of the employee from the employment. In the TV show, it's the separation of work life and personal life. It's useful that the word is associated with employment as it makes people think of the office setting.
