Severance Agreements Attorney
Presented with a Severance Agreement? Call us first before signing
Do not sign a severance agreement without understanding what you are giving up in return. Employers are generally not required to pay you any severance. Often, however, employers offer severance pay – a few months of salary and/or health benefits – upon termination on the condition that you release and/or waive all potential legal claims that you might have against your employer. Stated another way, in return for an immediate payment of a small sum of money, the employer requires you to permanently give up your right to sue your employer and potentially obtain larger recovery later on.
