Creative, Outside-The-Box Thinking For Complex Problems

Negotiating Your Severance Package To Maximize Your Compensation

Transitioning out of a job is never easy. When your employer has offered you a severance package, it can help ease the challenges you face as you leave your past position behind and begin working to secure a new position. A severance package can act as a cushion, but it is important to make sure you receive an appropriate package for your situation in order to give you the greatest stability as you look for your next opportunity.

My employer told me they were downsizing and that I am going to be laid off. How do I know they are paying me what I am entitled to? Why are other younger, less qualified employees being kept on?

The best way to maximize the value of your severance package is to discuss your situation with an experienced employment law attorney. I can help you effectively pursue the full severance package you deserve. Call me at 203-614-9805.

Is Your Employer Seeking To Terminate You For Illegal Reasons?

Employers cannot terminate – or “downsize” – employees for illegal purposes, such as race, sex, age, disability, or in retaliation against a whistleblower. One of the first things I do is to investigate the true purpose for your termination. If you were terminated for an illegal reason, I will find out, and use it as leverage during severance negotiations to secure a better deal for you.

Experience Is Key During Severance Negotiations

With more than 30 years of experience fighting for the rights of employees, I can help you make the most of your severance negotiations. At William J. Lasko, Attorney at Law, LLC, my experience and my ability to dig deep and uncover instances where employers rely on pretextual reasons to cover up illegal terminations can help you push for the maximum value in your severance package. Even if you believe that your termination did not involve any pretext, it is always beneficial to have experienced representation there when negotiating severance.
