This Mississauga Lawyer Specializes in Termination Package Negotiation
The landscape of the average career is shifting. Most employees will wind up working for several different employers throughout their careers. Employees may leave of their own accord, or be laid off or terminated in some cases. Following termination or a layoff, some employees may be entitled to a termination package or severance package, extending certain benefits beyond the termination date. When negotiating termination packages, it can be essential to seek consultation from an experienced employment lawyer before accepting terms.
Gary A. Bennett is a lawyer with twenty two years in his field, serving clients in the Mississauga, ON area. He specializes in employment law, labour law, and civil litigation. He can work with you to review and negotiate any termination package you may be offered (or that you may be entitled to) following termination or layoff.
