My daughter was laid off without cause after 17 yrs with company she is a middle manager earning $150000 per year. She had an offer for 12 months severance and 3 months benefits she has taken this to a lawyer and is contesting it. The company has decided to defend their action but is taking a long time to respond.
Can my daughter get another job whilst waiting for this to be settled. Is she entitled to more benefits? Is there a time frame for aettling this can the company drag it out hoping she will give in?

If your daughter has legal counsel then she should be putting these questions to her lawyer. Most severance negotiations resolve very quickly, however it depends on the approach taken. If your daughter would like a second opinion feel free to let her know she can give us a call at the number below.
