After 19 years, my employment was recently terminated. I received a 'Separation of Employment Agreement and General Release' document from my ex-employer requesting my signature before they are willing to pay any severance. Should I have a lawyer review this before I sign it???
ABSOLUTELY! Go to www.welaweb.org for a list of qualified employment lawyers. You may actually be able to negotiate additional severance, depending on the facts of your situation. Good luck!
