Severance Packages Ottawa
Are you in Ottawa and have you recently received a severance package to sign from your former employer? Do not be alarmed. It is common practice for employers to provide their terminated employees with a severance agreement to clarify specific terms, obligations and conditions that will come into effect upon conclusion of the employment relationship.
The severance package contains terms about how much money the employee will receive in place of working throughout a reasonable notice period, how the money will be paid and for what duration, as well as other existing entitlements that will either be terminated immediately, over a period of time, or when the ex-employee secures their next job.
Upon receiving your severance package in or around the Ottawa area, you should not miss the opportunity to have an experienced lawyer specializing in employment law to review all the terms and conditions to be certain that you are not signing away any rights or allowing your former employer to walk away from any obligations owing to you.
