Handling the Loss of a Job

Unfortunately, the current state of the economy has resulted in an abnormally high number of employees who have lost their jobs. This experience is hard and difficult for any employee’s family. The loss of employment can result in changes in lifestyle and alter plans for retirement and financial planning. Questions become reality on how to continue to pay a mortgage, continue insurance coverage and provide for a family. The ability to cope with the prospect of job loss can be eased by proper planning and timely legal advice.

Frequently Asked Questions

A common question the Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley is asked is whether an employer is required to provide an exiting employee with a severance package or payment. While some employers offer severance agreements to employees, this is not a mandatory practice. Further, there are often questions and issues that arise with regard to the language and requirements set out in a proposed severance agreement or package. With involuntary termination of employment, unemployment payments may be available to an employee for a period of time while the employee is transitioning and seeking new employment.
