Why an employer is this shitty situation will give packages? I doubt they will.
Employers give severance packages for many reasons. Especially at times like this, it's quite cost-effective as most severance packages pay for themselves in a few months.

Combined with a mutual agreement it removes most legal risks, especially for older, more senior staff.

It can help remove resistance to departures, some staff even volunteer. And, it can help to smooth transition of responsibilities.

It's a way of treating people with respect, for organisations that care about their reputation.

I don't speak for the OP's employer.
