At the Termination of Previous Job
Get a lawyer to review your severance package
Stop! Don't sign anything until you hire a lawyer to look over your severance package. Generally your former employer is NOT putting everything on the table.
The employer has lawyers spend several days drafting the severance agreement, and they count on you signing it within a few minutes of receiving it.
You will regret not hiring a lawyer when you learn that every single one of your ex-colleagues who did it ended up with more money.
