I have a fully executed severance contract. I was later offered an ongoing position. I verbally accepted and have emails negotiating the position with the company's CFO. No formal paperwork superseding the severance arrangement has been done although verbally many people know I planned to stay. I also received a raise for accepting the offer verbally. In 30 days everyone in my department (aside from the former controller) will be gone and I cannot handle the workload and feel I'm being setup for failure. There were 6 of us doing finance/accounting and I will be the only person left and only 2 duties have been scheduled for transfer to the new team. I work 10-13 hours per day and cannot continue. I want to get my severance and leave in May as is documented. Can I do this legally?
