Severance Packages

Dear Management Doctor:

What is your position regarding Planning Directors signing a contract or working out a severance package before accepting a new position?

Dear Potential Severancee,

I totally support contracts and severance packages for Planning Directors. We all know how volatile and political these positions can be. I'd suggest three- to six-months pay would be reasonable. I hope our readers who have such packages will share how theirs works. Also, why not encourage AICP to do some research and write guidelines for this?
