Understand your rights when your position is eliminated

Leaving a job when you don't really want to is difficult. This is exactly what usually happens when positions are phased out and workers are let go because of that. One of the biggest things that individuals who are in this position worry about is how they will make ends meet when their income stops.

Some employees are fortunate enough to have a severance agreement in their contract for work. When this is the case, you can check your contract to find out what you will receive when your position is eliminated. In the absence of this, you might have to work to negotiate a severance package.

We understand that this is a difficult time for you because you don't know what the future holds. We can't predict that for you, but we can work on your behalf to work out a severance agreement. This agreement could mean the difference between you scraping by and being able to take your time finding another job.

There are many things that might be considered in a severance agreement. Money is one of the main priorities, but you also need to think about things like insurance coverage and other benefits. In some cases, you might be able to get your employer to extend these for you so that you can focus on finding new work.

We know that you might be feeling the pressure of an uncertain career path now. We can help to take the legal strain off of you so that you can focus on finding your direction and making plans accordingly.
