Your employer has just terminated your employment. You’re suddenly out of work and you’re upset about it. You don’t know what you’re going to do without the income that you have become accustomed to. You feel embarrassed and angry. Your life has been turned upside down and you have more questions than answers. You don’t know what to do.
This is not the time for quick uninformed decision making. This is not the time to agree to a severance package or to sign documents that your employer has asked you to sign. You’re upset now but you’ll be devastated later on if you find out that your employer not only terminated your employment but also deprived you of compensation that you were entitled to.
In order to figure out what to do next, you need information that you can trust. You should speak to an employment lawyer who knows about wrongful dismissal and is committed to representing employees before making a decision as to how to proceed. And if your employer tries to pressure you into signing a severance package, tell it that you need to understand what your rights are before you can sign anything.
If you were terminated and are unsure whether or not you received enough compensation (aka termination pay or severance pay or a severance package), now is the time to contact Franklin Law and book a consultation.
Determining the amount of compensation you are likely to be entitled to upon termination and figuring out the best approach to securing that compensation requires legal training and “hands on” experience that most employees and many lawyers do not have. Because a significant part of Franklin Law’s practice involves representing employees who have been wrongfully dismissed, our lawyers are well positioned to provide you with timely and trustworthy advice, represent you in negotiations with your employer and if necessary, represent you in an action (or lawsuit) against your employer for wrongful dismissal.
