RPL Partners Helen D. “Heidi” Reavis and Alice K. Jump Featured in Article on Severance and Job Loss
Last week, The Muse, an online career resource, published an article by Stacey Lastoe on employee rights and severance in the wake of job loss that quoted RPL Partners Helen D. “Heidi” Reavis and Alice K. Jump. Ms. Lastoe asked Ms. Reavis and Ms. Jump about the general rights of employees in these situations and what, if anything, an employee can and should do to mitigate the effects.
“According to Reavis and Jump (and, oh, I don’t know, the economy), the trend is for employees to receive less than ever before should they lose their job. […] You’d be ‘well-advised to consult a lawyer’ before signing a job exit document, says Reavis. ‘These are important commitments that could impact you for years to come. You owe it to yourself for anything you sign to be fully understood.'”
Ms. Reavis and Ms. Jump both have extensive employment practices at the firm. Ms. Reavis also practices in the areas of intellectual property and media law. Ms. Jump is in the firm’s litigation group and additionally practices in real estate law.
