1)employer has severance policy w/ point 'fail to accept job deemed suitable by company' gets no severance
2) employer outsourcing my job and position offered by outsourcer

Am I legally entitled to severance due to fact 'suitable job' is not with original employer i.e policy implies job to be with original employer?
Has there been any legal challange to my employer's position?

Severance Pay

An employer is not required to pay severance. If they do choose to offer severance policy it must be reasonable, fair, and nondiscriminatory. I would be happy to review your situation and suggest course of action. Please feel free to contact me at 683.1850 or at acrone@cronemason.com.
