I got fired from work due to "restructuring changes". I was some of the few affected from my team and it was done during my vacation. They sent me a settlement agreement as a pdf which is not yet valid from any parts. I was fired by e-mail and since then they did not answer the questions that I had. They promised on another e-mail 12 weeks of severance but in the deal there is only 8 weeks described. I have only two/three weeks to act on this, so I am not sure if someone here can help me to understand my chances:
- Does it worth to take them to court? I heard court can take years to solve and I am not sure if I can work in the meantime or if they will provide me with my salary until is solved.
- What is the best way to negotiate with them as they neither sent me the real deal nor they want to answer my questions.
- Can I getter a better deal for the settlement agreement?
I will have a lawyer appointment soon but I just want to find the best strategy to leave it in peace.
Thanks everyone for any help,
