I was recently termintated without casue and am receiving severance (brdige paymetns). If I find work while collecting severance do I continue to collect severance as per the contract and final release? I've looked over both documents multiple times and there is nothing about severance payments stoppping.

The severance agreement can be structured as a lump sum payment, salary continuance without a claw-back, or salary continuance with a claw-back. If your agreement provides for the latter, then the salary continuance will stop in the event you find other work within a certain period of time. We can't give you a more precise answer unless we review your documentation so feel free to reach out to us at the number below to arrange a time to speak with someone from our legal team.
