Employer won’t respond to negotiation on terms of Termination after lay off. What to do ?
So I was laid off last week. I sent out an email to the delivery list provided for Q&A and negotiation around the Terms of Termination. It’s been a week and they haven’t responded to my email ! I only have until next week to accept the T&C to be eligible for a lump sum severance pay out. I’ve tried to follow up on email ( which is the only point of contact provided in the termination letter ) but no response yet.
I’m sure they are not responding so in the end when I’m out of time I’ll just accept the terms they mentioned at first, and they won’t have to do anything.
How can I fight back with the clock ticking ? Should I forward the negotiation email to my Manager ? or my Manager’s Manager ( who broke the “You’re getting laid off “ news to me ) ?
