How is a severance package calculated?

There are four main factors that are used to determine a severance package.

  • How old is the employee
  • How long has the employee worked for?
  • What kind of job employee is doing?
  • How long will it take the employee to find a comparable job in regard to his/her qualifications, training and experience.

Each severance package can comprise of difference clauses.

Below are some additional questions that we can address in our free consultation.

  • Are you better off with a lump sum or salary and benefit continuance?
  • Should you be looking for new work, and what happens if you find it?
  • Are you entitled to bonuses, commissions, or other variable compensation during the notice period? And what about entitlements that accrued while you were still working?
  • Are you entitled to compensation for the manner in which you were dismissed?
  • What if you were harassed or discriminated against? Can you seek damages for that too?
  • What if the company won’t negotiate? What if they withdraw their original offer?

If you have been terminated and have been provided a severance package, contact us today and we will review your package for free. There are no obligations, and we only get paid if we are able to get you additional money than what was originally offered.
