Frequently Asked Questions:

Make sure you don't settle for less! Every employment situation is unique, but no situation is “take it or leave it”. We will assist you in negotiating your compensation, benefits, and incentives package. Don’t leave dollars, benefits, and perks off the table!

Should I accept the severance pay being offered?

Be very careful before you accept ANY severance pay, plan, or program. No severance package is a “take it or leave it” situation! Your severance can be structured to provide more beneficial tax treatment and better opportunities for benefits. It depends upon your situation as to how you should receive severance as there are potential tax risks, vesting and unemployment compensation issues. In addition, payments may impact your eligibility for incentive compensation.

Call us to see how your severance pay package should be structured, so we can evaluate whether your ultimate receipt of the funds should be either lump sum payment, salary continuance, or as periodic payments.

Should I sign a release of claims and other restrictive covenants or clauses as are being required in my separation agreement?

Think twice before signing anything! Don't sign any release of legal rights or final settlement of claims or any other restrictive covenant, such as confidentiality or non-compete provisions until you either consult us or are certain you understand all its terms. Releases and settlements written by an employer ordinarily contain a lot of terms that protect your employer. They are not written to help or protect you. You must negotiate in order to protect your career.
