Severance Package Issues
If you have been offered a separation package you need a lawyer on your side, to ensure that all of the terms are understood and agreed. Many severance agreements advise you to consult an attorney before you sign waiver. You are not given this advice because your employer wants a lawyer inspecting the terms, but because in many case such language is mandatory.
- Have you been given seven days to revoke your signature?
- Have you been given 21 or 45 days to consider the release?

- Were you informed of the eligibility criteria for the selections?
- Do you understand why you are to be provided this information as part of the separation package?
