I requested 3 months and had it written into an agreement. Smaller agency in a region with fewer positions available to bounce to at a senior level. They paid out in less than 18 months which is exactly why I was glad I’d insisted it be put in writing.

I asked what their standard severance was (2 weeks) and due to “these unprecedented times” asked for one month in exchange for giving one month’s notice if I decide to leave on my own terms. They agreed.

Ahh, super fair!! Very helpful. Thanks!

Get a contract lawyer, but don’t let anyone know you’ve got a contract lawyer. They’ll be able to spot opportunities and issues that you never would. It’s worth the money.

Can you reco a contract lawyer by any chance you have used?
