Have A Severance Agreement On The Table? You Need An Attorney.
In many cases, negotiating the terms of a severance agreement can lead to a better offer. But those who fail to hire an attorney to review the document quite often are leaving money on the table.
There are several factors to consider in a severance agreement beyond the dollar amount of compensation, such as:
- Benefits such as health insurance, a pension or 401(k)
- Unused vacation time or sick leave
- Terms of the agreement, such as confidentiality or your employment status
- Vehicles, computers or phones the employer provided you during employment
