Getting Laid Off? How To Negotiate On Your Way Out

Being shown the door at work is never easy… but you can still leave with your head held high.

Private labor and employment attorney, Steven Sack, told Forbes Magazine that every firing is negotiable, as long as no misconduct is involved. According to Sack there are things you can do to make sure you’re getting the best exit deal possible.

It all starts with the surprise termination meeting. If you find yourself in this position, remain professional. Appearing cool, calm and collected will benefit you more in the long run than losing it will.

Never accept the first offer, negotiate until you feel it’s something you can live with. Stay on the payroll as long as possible, this will give you a little extra cushion.

Sack says those three things are the most important to remember but his list of what to do and what not to do is a bit longer. To see options you have, check out the original article now.

As long as you did nothing wrong they can’t force you out the door without paying you for your time.
