These issues may haunt everyone who has lost their jobs, but in many cases, a severance package can make the transition a little easier to swallow. Severance pay is compensation and benefits that are granted to a worker after dismissal, often as compensation for unused leave or sick leave, or even in recognition of the person who has worked for the company for a considerable amount of time. In many cases, these types of parcels are regulated and promised by the execution of a severance contract signed by the employer and the worker.
However, it is important to note that these agreements are not always as beneficial to the worker as they could be. In addition, severance pay does not include the remuneration of the actual working time and the wages already earned by the worker who, at the end of that period, are legally obliged to pay the worker. The quintessence is that you should not accept an insufficient redundancy package. Your employer is putting you in this difficult situation, and he should do everything in his power to help you come to your next good job and pursue your career.

It is sometimes desirable to include in the severance agreement a provision that explicitly allows the employer, through carefully selected representatives, to address the remaining workers and provide appropriate information on the separation of the employment relationship.
At least the dismissal agreement should provide for the employee to inform the employer of such a measure and give the employer the opportunity to take over the defence after his choice.
