How to get Fired with Severance?
Over the past few years at my place of employment there have been several people fired (with cause due to dysfunctional workplace and losing one’s mind and doing stupid things like calling boss a FA) and they get a nice package of cash to go away. Is it possible to negotiate your own departure with a similar severance package gracefully? Or do I have to be jerk and do something “bad” to get fired to get the same package.
I’m getting older in age and to be realistic, it will be difficult to find a similar job with similar pay. I would leave if I could find such job. The working environment is toxic and for my own mental health, I need to get out. For all the critics out there, I’ve been bold and tried to influence sanity, but the “old boys club” is the old boys club.
Are there any employment lawyers out there that could offer some advice on such negotiation?
