Legal Question

Asked on: 6/26/13, 10:53 am

2 Months ago my company notified me I would be getting laid off 6/28 and I would be getting a severance package. Need help!

Today they offered to extend me another 3 months, however I feel I have already fulfilled my original commitment to them of staying until 6/28. If i decline their offer, am I still entitled to my severance package, as well as my unemployment rights? Or would i be forfeiting both severance and UI by declining the 3 month extension? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

They also offered me a $3,000 "stay til 6/28" bonus. I would also like to know if i'm entitled to that as well. I really would like to move on from this company, but I don't want to do so if i'm giving up the severance, bonus, and unemployment.
