What Happens When You are Given an Exit Offer?
Have you been presented with a severance package? You may be tempted to accept your company's first offer. You may even think negotiation is not even an option in your case.
It is imperative to understand that you do not need to accept the company’s initial offer. This agreement often contains a waiver of your important rights as an employee. This is why you must determine whether or not your rights are being violated and what choices you have going forward.
Once the agreement has been signed, you typically waive all claims you may have against the company. You surrender the chance to achieve reasonable severance pay for your transition from the employment.
You also lose the opportunity to:
- Claim a wrongful termination
- Obtain a reference
- Withhold a potentially adverse reference
- Arrange a resignation
- Find immediate future employment in the industry
You can also lose other critical advantages you may possess. These can affect everything from your immediate situation to finding a new job.
When a company offers a severance package, they have a vested interest in protecting their own best interests, not yours. This is especially true if you are leaving the company on bad terms. That is why it is important to get an attorney on your side to advocate for your interests.
