Resignation, Firing & Termination Questions

Should I try to negotiate a better severance package?

Add Answer

Employees have more bargaining power than they realize. Don't be pressured into signing anything on the spot. Tell your construction employer you need to review the proposed agreement with your legal and financial advisers. Then, check the construction employer policy manual to find out what is standard practice for employees in your situation. If you can, talk to others whom the construction employer has terminated. You can argue your case on merits such as length of service, specific accomplishments and amount of time required to find comparable employment in today's labor market. Added by:- Admin
