Can I negotiate retirement instead

1 Answers. Asked on May 04th, 2017 on Labor and Employment - North Carolina
More details to this question:
After 8 months of stress with a new boss, I made a mistake, it was caught, and I'm being fired. The bad decision was caused by a stress filled toxic work environment. I'm 66 and can retire. Can a lawyer negotiate that for me? There are no medical or retirement benefits involved.

Whether a lawyer can help you will depend on several different facts so you will want to consult with an attorney directly.  However, if they are ready to terminate you, then there is little reason for them to offer you retirement benefits especially if there are none involved.  The question I have for you is: do you really mean, "Can a lawyer negotiate with the employer to get my termination changed to retirement in the company's paperwork?"  If so, then perhaps.  Set a consultation with an attorney to discuss.

Labor and employment attorneys can help both employers and workers prevent, address and resolve a variety of issues related to the employer-employee relationship. Small business owners and managers should consult with employment lawyers when crafting employment policies (including those related to hiring, affirmative action, compensation, medical leave and sexual harassment); negotiating employment contracts, non-compete agreements and severance agreements; and resolving employment-related personnel disputes. Workers should talk to a labor and employment law firm before signing any job-related contracts and for help addressing issues related to discrimination, harassment, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requests.
