I was recently let go from my job and given a two week severance package. The money was deposited into my account almost immediately. I was given an agreement to sign, but I prefer not to sign it because I don't think I was fired for a good reason, and I don't want my signature on something that implies I agree with the release. While I don't plan to pursue legal action or go out of my way to say negative things about the company or its employees, I don't like the idea of signing a document that agrees to those stipulations. When I talk to former colleagues who I'm still friends with, I plan to give them an honest assessment of what I think happened, and I don't want any potential trouble for that.
So, is it wrong for me to not sign this document? Aside from my former employer taking legal action, which seems unlikely, is there another consequence I'm not considering?
