Severance Package Q & A

What do I do if I have received a separation notice asking me to waive my rights to future claims in exchange for a sum of money?
The first thing you should do if you receive a separation notice promising you a certain amount of money in exchange for waiving your rights to a future claim is to contact an Atlanta severance package lawyer to discuss your options. Oftentimes after termination, you might not realize what your living expenses quite are or what things you will forfeit in simply accepting a lump sum of money. Insurance, pensions, stock options, and a number of other items can also be a part of a severance package, and Atlanta severance package lawyer Brandon Hornsby will negotiate these items with your former company to ensure you are justly compensated for your time and toils with the company.

What is a fair severance package, how do I know if I’m being fooled into taking too little?
The best thing you can do in this scenario is to consult with an experienced Atlanta severance package lawyer to discuss your employment, your accomplishments and background, the terms of your separation, and whether or not your severance is reasonable. Do not feel pressured into having to take what the company offers you, there are many options that are standard in severance packages which companies do not originally offer in negotiations and which you are entitled to given your hard work and dedication to the company. Furthermore, talking to an Atlanta severance package lawyer at Brandon Hornsby, P.C. might bring up discrimination or wrongful termination issues you did not initially realize and which could entitle you to greater compensation.
