The Sun newspaper reports publication in November 2018 of Resignation Revolution: How to negotiate your exit package like a pro’ by our own Alex Monaco and Will Burrows:
‘Exit strategy employment lawyer Alex Monaco gives his top tips on how to negotiate a fair exit package if you are forced out of a job
There’s plenty you can do to ensure you get the best deal if you’re
forced out of a job:
- DON’T RESIGN IMMEDIATELY:If you do, you lose an important bargaining chip
in negotiating a better settlement agreement.
- DON’T PLAY TOO NICELY:A settlement is not what you ought to get, it’s what
they owe you for your workplace mistreatment and for forcing you out of your job.
- DON’T BURN YOUR BRIDGES:You don’t have to hide your feelings but don’t come
across as too angry as you must remain professional at all times.
- OFFER SOMETHING BACK: Suggest a confidentiality clause or a smooth handover
to your successor.
- BE AWARE OF YOUR THREE-MONTH DEADLINE: Don’t let your negotiations push you
over the strict three-month time limit for tribunal claims.
