I have asked for a copy of the severance package document, but my employer say the document is signed after the last day of work and not prior.

I held a management position with a family owned business. I

I held a management position with a family owned business. I worked there for 24 years with the exception of a period of 6 months November 1999 to May 2000, I left for better money but found the grass is not always greener so was rehired back into the family business. I have since quit again with no intent on returning and I am sure would not be rehired. I gave two week notice but was terminated pretty much on the spot. Was given final check and a week severance. Question is am I due two weeks considering my two week notice? Second, they did not present me with any paperwork regarding cobra papers for continuation of health insurance. I questioned previous employer 2 weeks later and was told insurance company would contact me direct. I just found out today, as of August 31 we have been without health insurance and my wife was due to have surgery next week. Do I have any recourse with previous employer?

The company I worked for recently shut down its Dallas area

The company I worked for recently shut down its Dallas area office resulting in the layoff of myself and eight others. We are all engineering professionals and all over fifty. We all received the same release agreement and severance package (i.e., one month's pay and one month's Cobra). The package was presented as a “take-it-or-leave-it” proposition. There are parts of the agreement that seem a bit onerous, so I'm looking for someone to review the agreement.
