Career Transitions: Severance

Is there a topic under which severance is a
logical subheading?  Beats me…  It is something
that should be aired in today’s more rapidly
changing job situation.

In exploring “niche job sites” provided in an article,
one rose above the rest in providing content,
http://www.6figurejobs.com/

Surfing the site, beamed me to a place
with a neat article about severances by Kirk Nemer,

The 8 Biggest Severance Package Mistakes
“Americans who are offered a severance
package, a retirement package, or a buyout
offer from companies leave dollars, benefits,
and many other incentives on the table as
they walk out a company’s doors. Most
people don’t realize they can negotiate for
extended pay, more benefits and other terms
of their employment departure.

Employees also are too quick to sign the
release agreements and leave their
companies, focusing primarily on the
severance pay and overlooking key
areas of their packages.”

The article provides insights a lawyer representing
people who have been in situations and the
misconceptions they bring.  It is worth raising
these questions and exploring the consequences
of various actions.  If readers would be so
kind as to share their experiences, good or
bad, it would be interesting to learn from them.

Thanks,
Dan
