Severance- what should you receive?

shakeUnemployment is up to 6.7%! I know many individuals that have been laid off over the past year and it doesn’t lo0k like we are going to see a slow down anytime soon! Fortunately most that are laid off  receive a severance along with all of their vacation pay whether you work for a private or public co. According to a Typical salaried (non-union) severance benefit is two (2) weeks pay for each year of service — to a maximum of 26 weeks.

Typical executive severance benefit will be in the 6 to 12 months range.

For those that are just cut loose without a severance (rare but can happen), talk with your employer and hope that humanity wins out if not look into the State and Federal Laws regarding severance packages.
