Do you have to give employees copy of severance plan?

Q. Can you sue a company after signing severance agreement?

Q. When do you not get a severance from employment?

Q. Can a company reduce severance by actual mitigation?

Q. How long do you have to sign a severance agreement?

And, you don’t have to wait the full 21 (or 45) days; you can sign the agreement earlier, if you wish.

This seven-day period is required by law; neither you nor your employer can waive it.
