Many employees, especially at the executive level, approach an offer of employment as a “take it or leave it” proposition. Similarly, employees who have been terminated without an offer of a severance package often walk away from their employment without understanding their rights and the potential leverage they may have to obtain better terms upon termination. This course is a primer on how executives can negotiate better compensation and severance packages. Join partner Yogi Patel of Lloyd Patel LLP for this discussion. 


Learning Objectives:

I.      Discover when and how to negotiate the terms of an employment agreement

II.     Learn key employment terms to consider negotiating

III.    Understand when and how to approach termination of employment
