Though I'm 62 years old, I am not ready to retire. My current employer company was recently sold and they have installed new management changing my role from VP-Finance to VP-HR/Compliance (which is not a good fit). I believe they retained me to avoid a potential legal issue since I am a female past 40. It seems obvious they would like to sever my employment and I feel the same. I am friends with one of the Board members, and he advised me to consider what I would accept in an exit/severance proposal. I'd like to move on amicably but want to obtain the best package that I can. What needs to be included in my proposal given my age, employment level and protected status? It seems I have a decent bargaining position.
