I was terminated after 12 years of service. It was a technical role and I'm in my 40s. I was offered 25 weeks severance . I want to counter with 35 weeks is that fair?

Thank you for your question. Given your circumstances, your termination entitlements could be in the range of 12 months, depending on your annual compensation. If you negotiate on your own, you might prejudice your legal position and end up with less severance pay. I strongly recommend that you contact us at the number below right away to discuss your situation in more detail with an employment lawyer. It is important that you have your package reviewed by an employment lawyer before you sign or agree to anything.
