I’m recommending Jackson Spencer Law for legal representation in negotiating a successful outcome for your separation agreement upon layoffs and workforce reductions. The oil and gas industry has experienced dramatic reductions in staff across all sectors—operations, management, and service companies. In such economic context, proving age discrimination for the middle aged manager becomes a challenge.
My employer offered the minimum in severance and COBRA, and when I attempted to represent myself in negotiation, they stood firm on their original offer. Within two weeks of engaging Jennifer Spencer and her able staff, the employer doubled their offering. This settlement with extended COBRA brought much relief while the industry recovers and begins to rehire as commodity prices stabilize over the next year.
The decision to retain Jennifer proved the best possible outcome. With Jackson Spencer Law’s timely communications during critical deadlines, I experienced peace of mind and confidence in my counsel.
