Are you Entitled to Severance Pay in New Jersey?

By Thomas McKinney

Are you entitled to severance pay in New Jersey?  The answer is no unless the employer has a policy that makes it contractually bound to provide you with severance pay.  Our New Jersey severance attorneys have been successful in negotiating severance on behalf of employees who were previously not offered any severance pay by their former employer.  We have had the best results when our client requests severance in return for a release of a potential claim against the company or where the company will require our client’s cooperation in the future regarding a lawsuit, pending patent, or other reason that the former employer would need to utilize our client’s services.
