Severance Pay Laws in Connecticut
Losing your job comes with dozens of challenges; each of which can be stressful and confusing. Severance pay is often one of those confusing aspects. In the state of Connecticut, severance agreements are typically a lump sum amount of money or a percentage of pay based on how long the employee was with the company — but they aren’t set in stone.
Connecticut severance pay laws do not require employers to offer a severance package. If your company does offer one, it’s usually to protect itself from litigation. Employees agree to not pursue legal action in exchange for severance benefits.
This is why it is always recommended to seek the help of an experienced Connecticut employment lawyer before signing your severance agreement. Severance agreements are not a one-off offer and can be negotiated per Connecticut severance pay laws. Our attorneys will help you determine if the verbiage you’re agreeing to is acceptable and that you’re protected. We can help negotiate the possibility of more money, an extension on your health insurance, and other beneficial add-ons.
Your Rights in Connecticut
Connecticut severance pay laws indicate employers are not legally required to offer you a severance package, but the offer of one means we can help negotiate on your behalf. Our team of employment lawyers can take the brunt off of you when it comes to communicating with your former employer and can help you craft the severance agreement into something that is mutually beneficial.
While negotiating your severance, our team will also ensure you don’t lose out on pay and benefits that are in your contract. This could include stock options, retirement funds, and even bonuses that you are still owed. Furthermore, we can negotiate that your employer writes you a letter of reference to assist you in finding your next job.
Remember, Connecticut severance pay laws do not require you to accept a severance package. You can turn it down completely should you choose to do so, and you should not feel pressure from your employer or HR department. Contact the Severance Lawyers for a fast and fair review.
