After a termination, why do companies give two weeks severance per year worked at a company?
If I only worked there for 6 months, that means I only get 1 weeks severance pay. Isn't termination after a shorter stay more damaging to my career (looks bad on resume) compared to being there longer?

      Isn't severance about paying for damages to the terminated employee?

      How do you negotiate severance? You take it or leave it.

      Damages for what? If you were let go for performance issues most likely not. Of course you negotiate severance. You can check out the book by finacial samurai for a quick overview.

      Damages for sudden termination. It would definitely hurt my career to be terminated early in a job

      There's no such thing. Why would you think it would hurt your career? You just say you didn't like the team or was laid off. Next.
