Losing a job can be a very emotionally charged experience. However, if you ever find yourself in this unfavorable situation, you should be sure to keep a level head and adhere to the following suggestions: 

1. If your employer makes any offers, take time to comprehensively review the offers, talking to an attorney if need be, before signing any agreements. Do not act immediately and refrain from taking the employer’s first offer.

2. Make sure that all severance packages or other financial offers are made in writing. 

3. If possible, take time before deciding whether to resign or be terminated from your position. 

4. When negotiating your severance package, be sure to include medical and dental coverage in your discussions. 

5. Finally, do not allow your severance package to be contingent upon new employment offers. 

If you need assistance with the above, do not hesitate to discuss your situation with an experienced employment law attorney who can get you the severance package you deserve.
