i have been discharged due to labor force reduction, my position was eliminated, by law i thought that a company had to eliminate or get rid of employees with less seniority, in my case i have 32yrs 6mo last position Plant Oper Mgr and the company kept employees with less than 3 yrs of employment, i have been offered a severance pkg of 1 week for each year of service. I want to make sure that this is fair, the company has told me that i can ask an attorney to review the agreement, i have not found someone local.
i appreciate any feedback on this issue. I am the person with the most seniority in the company and my age is 52 my record with the company is excellent. company sales have decreased by a good %
