Letting an Attorney Go? Consider Outplacement to Soften the Blow

Letting an Attorney Go? Consider Outplacement to Soften the Blow

A traditional severance package typically includes two weeks of pay or more for each year that an attorney worked and a continuation of benefits for a period of time. However, another growing component of a severance package is outplacement assistance which is intended to help attorneys find work following job loss. The attorney can pay for outplacement themselves, but it is an added bonus when the company provides it as part of the severance agreement.
