Severance Packages Mississauga
A severance package is binding contract between an employer and its ex-employee that details financial terms and other conditions that come into effect at the conclusion of the employment relationship. The severance package contains terms about how much money the employee will receive to leave work immediately, rather than have him or her continue working throughout their notice period, how the money will be paid out and for how long, and other entitlements that will either be terminated immediately or over a period of time. If you received a severance package in Mississauga, have one of our lawyers review your package to see if it is fair.
Severance packages can and should be negotiated. Employees in Mississauga who were terminated should seek legal counsel with Whitten & Lublin Employment & Labour Lawyers before signing any documents. Not only could you be leaving money on the table that ought to be yours, but you may also be agreeing to sign other contractual terms that adversely affect your employability, your right to sue your ex-employer for other breaches in your employment relationship, or for a better severance upon realizing that the original terms were unreasonable.
If you are in Mississauga and your employment has been terminated you need to protect your rights. Our lawyers at Whitten & Lublin are leaders in employment law, and they will help you understand the terms of the severance agreement and negotiate a more favourable severance package on your behalf.
