Get A Fair Severance Package
We can assess severance offers based on several factors, including:
- Your wages and benefits at the time of termination
- Your age and financial needs
- Whether you could retain health insurance coverage and other employment benefits
- Whether the severance agreement contains terms that limit you or release the company from legal liability
- The severance pay that employees in similar roles typically receive
- Potential tax obligations
