We can't actually tell you what you should or you shouldn't do. However, I can discuss your different options for you.

If that's agreeable then please let me know.

Also, so that I'm sure I understand, in exchange for you signing this document the employer is going to give you two weeks "severance pay", correct?

Are they going to oppose you drawing unemployment?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
