Laying off Employees

I had a question about laying off employees. Do you have to provide notice or payment in lieu if it is just a temporary lay off? Eg. If they have worked 90 days to under 2 years you have to give one weeks notice prior and for those who have worked over two years it is two weeks notice. In lieu you can pay one week's wages or two.

In this article it seems to indicate if the employee didn't agree with the layoff they can sue for wrongful dismissal.

So are all laid off employees receiving this notice or payment in lieu?

Edit: Looking at this article, only if the temporary layoff exceeds the time limit and becomes considered a termination then payment in lieu is required? Also no notice for layoffs are needed?
