Unlike most severance packages, which require workers to stay until the last day scheduled to collect, workers at the automobile company are eligible for its severance package even if they find a new job before they are terminated.

D. their last scheduled day in order to collect, the automobile company's severance package is available to workers
E. the last day that they are scheduled to collect, the automobile company's severance package is available to workers

We can ignore the second phrase in these answer choices, since they're identical, so basically it's down to:

D. their last scheduled day in order to collect,
E. the last day that they are scheduled to collect,

E. changes the meaning of the original sentence, where there is causality/necessity between the workers staying until the last scheduled day as a prerequisite to collecting their severance packages. E combines these two and creates a new day entirely, which is "the last day that they are scheduled to collect", without any mention of having to stay "in order to" (answer choice D.) and we lose the intended meaning.

Hope that helps, let me know if you need me to clarify anything!
