An employment lawyer may be able to advise you if you are receiving a fair severance package. Severance is related to the amount of notice that an employee who has been terminated should have been given.
The amount of a severance package depends on a number of factors including but not limited to the position held in the company, number of years the person worked there, salary, age, and actual reason for dismissal.
The employer may refer to the Employment Standards Act to determine the minimum amount of pay that is owed to the employee, but the employee may be entitled to more pay, which is why it is important to contact a lawyer.
If you have received a severance package, you may want to contact an employment lawyer to find out if you are receiving a fair package. You should not feel pressured to sign the offer right away. You should find out what type of severance pay you are entitled to.
