I live and work in a small office in PA for a large company.

Hi-I live and work in a small office in PA for a large company. My company is based in NJ and we are going through a re-org. They will be offering some people positions, the remaining ones will have to re-apply for whatever available jobs are left. The company does have an existing severance policy, but we are hearing they are trying to do everything possible NOT to have to pay out on this. For those of us in PA, our fear is that we will be given jobs located in NJ. If we refuse to move and take these NJ jobs- can they deny paying us severance pay?

I was fired from my job after 11 years. They offered a severance package if I sign an agreement. In the agreement it states that I resigned. I think that will negate my unemployment claim. Can they ask me to sign an agreement with a lie in it?

I am a 60 year old Executive that accepted a role 13 months

I am a 60 year old Executive that accepted a role 13 months ago, leaving a 17year secure job, that required me to move to another state. Situations with my Board of Directors such as the Chair dating staff, Secretary meddling to encouraging specific staff to bypass upper management decisions they disagree with, intentional failure to complete a Strategic Plan process to provide me direction, and general lack of support on key initiatives have made me feel constantly uncomfortable with this dysfunctional dynamic in play. I discussed certain details 4 times with BOD over past year without any action on their part. As a result, I was given a 30 day notice and released after only two weeks. I refused to sign their vague document, and will begin negotiating severance tomorrow.Personnel policy clearly states " In the event of the termination of the Executive Director, either voluntary or involuntary, severance terms must be on a case by case basis. Involuntary termination must be for cause and after all efforts expended to make improvements"Was this a case of Hostile Work environment that I need to pursue?
