Putting You in a Position to Move Forward in Your Career
As you describe your situation, Lonn Heymann Law Firm, P.C. will provide a candid assessment of your case. Your attorney will want to know the specifics about your employer, your duties, your performance evaluations, and other relevant facts. Employment contracts provide leverage in a severance negotiation, but such contracts are not always necessary. Evidence of employment discrimination or sexual harassment at your employer may strengthen your hand during the negotiation, or provide the basis for a separate action.
Your attorney will also want to understand your goals-in the near term, middle term, and long term. Your goals will help determine the severance negotiation strategy and the specific results you want to receive. Results might include a lump sum severance payment, payment of deferred compensation, pension or stock ownership benefits, continued health benefits, or other financial goals. Results can also be non-monetary, such as a favorable job reference or continued administrative support from your employer.
Lonn Heymann Law Firm, P.C. will work to achieve the best severance package possible-one that achieves your goals and allows you to move forward in your career.
