Step 2 - How to transition from an Office Paralegal to Virtual One?

Step 2

  • Before you quit your day-job ask your boss to review all the contracts and policies you signed as an employee to avoid conflict of interest in your virtual paralegal business.
  • Ask your current boss to review with you any stock options or securities benefits you may have received from the company, if applicable. 
  • Most stock options expire within 90 days after your termination date.  Therefore, you must decide if you are going to exercise your stock options once you leave your current employment.
  • Ask your current employer for clear instructions on how to transfer your 401(K) plans, along with other benefits.
  • Find out how they will handle your “paid-time-off” that you have not used. Do you need to use them before you go, or will you be compensated before you leave?
