Negotiating a Fair Severance Package
Severance is a mainstay for many executives and skilled employees. A corporation may offer a severance package at the time of hiring in order to attract top recruits. The contract may include termination provisions and the application of severance terms if the employee is terminated for cause versus being laid off for other business reasons.
For the employee, the best time to negotiate severance is at the time of hiring, when the employer is more amenable to better terms in order to recruit the employee. However, severance negotiations at the time of termination may make sense for both employer and employee to avoid lengthy litigation over fairness when parting ways.
Our lawyers negotiate equitable severance packages from the perspective of trial lawyers.
