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.
