Employers usually provide less than what employees deserve in the expectation that employees would sign the agreement without consulting a lawyer. When the employee signs the release, he or she will have signed away any further right to additional compensation.
An employee’s severance pay is determined by a variety of factors including age, length of employment, position, salary, perks and the ability to find a new comparable job.
Severance pay is not defined in common law as one or two weeks’ wages. An employee who was fired without cause may be entitled to up to 24 months’ salary.
A termination clause in an employment contract might limit the amount of severance compensation an employee is entitled to on termination. You might lose thousands of dollars in termination compensation if you sign an employment agreement that limits your benefits.
Therefore, it is very important that you are well informed about your rights and entitlements. Get in touch with us today so that we can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Employers have the option of terminating a non-unionized employee’s job without reason by issuing notice of termination in one of two methods (or a combination of both):
Working Notice: when an employer informs an employee that their employment will be terminated at some point in the future and permits the employee to continue working under the same terms and circumstances until that date; or
Pay in Lieu of Notice: When an employer informs an employee that their employment will be terminated immediately and pays the employee the earnings they would have received if they had kept working throughout the notice period.
The aim of giving termination notice is to give an employee who is fired without cause a fair amount of time to find another similar job. During the notice period, the employee may be eligible for all employment benefits, including salaries, vehicle allowance, and pension contribution, among others.Call Us Now

Working again, however, may impact the cost of severance the employee is entitled to if they claim after getting a new job. If the employee has reduced their damages by getting new similar work that pays almost the same, the court will reduce their time of severance. As a result, it is usually advisable to settle severance before the person returns to work.
In most cases, deadlines in a proposed severance agreement are useless. An employee is paid what he is entitled by law, not by the employer. As a result, if the offer is bad, the deadline should be ignored. In any case, the employee will not accept it.
