Tenafly Employment Lawyers Negotiating Severance Packages

New Jersey Severance Negotiation Lawyers

Many companies offer severance packages to employees who lose their jobs through no fault of their own. For example, companies often pay severance to employees whose jobs are eliminated or downsized as part of a mass layoff or reduction in force. Our employment lawyers can help negotiate your severance package.

At many companies, the amount of pay an employee is entitled to receive is calculated based on one or two weeks of salary for each year he or she has worked for the company. However, policies and practices vary greatly from one company to another in many important respects including who is entitled to receive severance pay and how much they are entitled to receive.

Experienced New Jersey Severance Negotiation Attorneys

Our employment lawyers are experienced at negotiating severance packages for employees in New Jersey and New York. If you have been wrongfully terminated or otherwise unfairly fired, but were not offered any severance package, our attorneys can discuss ways to try to persuade your employer to make you a fair offer. Likewise, if your employer offered you an inadequate separation package then we can try to negotiate increased severance pay, modify or remove undesirable provisions such as a non-compete agreement or a non-disparagement clause, and otherwise make the agreement fairer and more equitable to you.

We also handle claims under the New Jersey WARN Act, which requires some employers to provide severance pay to eligible employees who lost their jobs due to a mass layoff or transfer of operations. For more information, please see our article: New Severance Entitlement to New jersey Employees Subject to Mass Layoffs.
