COVID-19 Model Memo 5 – Requesting Improved Terms of Severance

Whether or not you have been asked to return to your workplace, if you do not want or plan to return to your workplace or job, it may be wise to respectfully request that a severance package be given to you, for which you would be willing, in return, to sign a release of claims.

While very few employees have a right to be paid severance, most fired, downsized or laid off employees are provided severance packages by their employees. Well, in some ways the Covid-19 pandemic is similar to being downsized or laid off – that is, not due to a performance issue or a misconduct allegation; There is absolutely no good reason at least to make such a request.

This Model Memo shows you “What to Say, and How to Say It.”™
