Advice for severance packages following termination

Most California employees will not be entitled to a severance package in the event of termination. However, some have the legal right to demand severance pay. It all depends on what your employment contract, employee handbook or employee manual says. Additionally, some California employees can attempt to negotiate special terms for severance pay by promising not to pursue a legal action against his or her employer.

Were you terminated for supporting a sexual harassment claim?

Some might say that you were in the wrong place at the wrong time. You witnessed an act of sexual harassment at your workplace, and it was traumatic enough just to see it. After you stepped forward to support the victim and back up the victim's claims, you became a victim yourself. Shortly after you spoke up on behalf of the victim, you were terminated.

Have you been victimized by a touch-feely boss?

It started innocently enough. Your boss invited you to lunch, paid the bill and you enjoyed the conversation about work and your respective families. Things soon escalated, however, and he started inviting you to dinner. You have refused time and time again, but he keeps asking you out, making comments about your body and even using sexual language with you.
