The way in which he acted on his way out the door and yesterday has made us regret our generosity.
Anchorage, Alaska (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
Lynne Curry, Ph.D., SPHR (CEO of The Growth Company, Inc.) has over 30 years of experience in management consulting and frequently receives questions from clients regarding situations in the workplace. Today, Dr. Curry releases an article for employers wishing to rescind their verbal severance pay offer.
Dr. Curry received an email from a client, “We have one problem employee who we could fire but we elected to let him resign instead. We thought he’d be grateful, but he’s not. When we had our meeting, we also told him we’d give him one month severance pay (he’s been here five years). The way in which he acted on his way out the door and yesterday has made us regret our generosity. Can we withdraw our severance offer as long as we didn’t make it in writing?”
