  • Medical Coverage while reviewing Severance agreement?

    Can anyone advice me on how severance agreement works?
    I was told by my HR that I have 10 days to review the severence agreement. I will be given the document on my termination date. If I sign it, they said they will cover my medical benefits for 3 months after the termination date. However, if after 10 days I decide not to sign it - they said I will not be covered for these 10 days.
    Is this legal?
    I had asked them for this document 3 weeks ago and they said they cannot give it to me. Should the employer not cover the 10 days period for my medical then? Else what is the use of the 10 day review time?
    I have 3 kids and beng without medical coverage for a single day is a risk I cannot take. Is there any law/policy about this/ I am in CA.

    No, as long as they give you at least 10 days to review the document (longer if you are over the age of 40).
