Losing your job is stressful. Whether you are being laid off or getting fired, you may be eligible to receive a severance package. Typically, this includes any unpaid wages, as well as payment for any paid time off (PTO), health insurance, sick leave or other benefits accrued over your years of employment. In a perfect world, every company would do right by their former employees, giving them every penny to which they are entitled.
Unfortunately, there are some disreputable employers out there who try to cut corners and not pay departing employees what they have earned. These companies take advantage of the fact that many people don’t fully understand their rights regarding a severance agreement. What’s more, most employees don’t have the legal resources to take on a company in court. This is especially true if you worked for a large organization with a team of attorneys.
