Severance Shortfall

My father was just recently laid off after 10 years of service as an Engineer with a large multinational engineering firm. After, just completing a project which kept him on the road for a year straight, he was told of his termination. He is to receive 10 weeks severance pay and is less than two years from retirement at age 65. This seems like an insufficient amount of severance pay after years of documented hard work and service. Does he have a potential claim?

age claim

if your father has any evidence of age discrimination, he should immediately contact an attorney experienced in employment litigation. there are several in the san diego area. the question is not the amount of severance pay, but the motive for the layoff.
if you want me to recommend attorneys in the san diego area, please email me offlist.
