January 31st, 2023
On Monday, January 30, 2023, CBS News Minnesota segment Good Question asked “What are your rights if you’re laid off?” And employment attorney Charles Horowitz answered with an informative discussion regarding employee rights, and what to do if you’ve been terminated or think you might be. From the story:
Prior to accepting a severance package, Horowitz said workers should question:
- If other people in the company should have been selected for layoff
- If you’re part of a legally protected class including race, age, gender, disability, nationality, sexual orientation, religion
- If you recently took time off for medical leave, including birth or adoption of a child
“If the answer to any of these questions is yes, it’s important to contact a lawyer,” he said.
