A Thoughtful Exit Strategy Makes Leaving a Current Employer Less Stressful and More Successful
Many executives and employees realize they need to develop an exit strategy before leaving a job. Most have not been in this situation before. Despite a wealth of business experience and expertise, they can profit from professional representation in navigating and negotiating a successful transition.
Considering Leaving Your Present Employer? Common Questions Arise
- How much severance should I get?
- Will I get my annual bonus?
- What about deferred compensation?
- Will I get paid for my unused vacation?
- What about my vested and non-vested equity-based compensation?
- Will I continue to receive health care coverage and life insurance?
- Do I have a claim of discrimination or other legal claim?
- Is the non-compete I signed enforceable or negotiable?
- What about references?
A Positive Start with a New Employer Is the Other Half of the Equation — and Just as Important
The best time to negotiate terms of employment and other details is at the outset of a new job or a new assignment. Clarifying and documenting mutual understandings can bolster your success, reduce future conflict, and provide peace of mind. Not only for you, but also for your new employer.
