How Much Is Enough Severance

By Thomas McKinney

We receive many phone calls from clients asking how much severance should they receive.  A NJ Severance Lawyer can tell you that you are not entitled to severance pay.  That being said, most companies that offer severance to their employees provide between one and two weeks of severance for each year of service.  Some companies provide a cap to the amount of severance pay ranging between 26 to 52 weeks.  Severance packages are very specific to each employer.

Our New Jersey severance lawyers can advise you on your severance agreement, whether you are being offered the right amount of severance, and whether there is any room to negotiate your severance agreement.  Please call a NJ Severance Lawyer today.
