If you are asked to sign a severance agreement, our attorneys can advise you about your rights and help you receive better terms.
When you leave an employer, you may be asked to sign a severance agreement in exchange for severance benefits. Severance agreements may be used whether the worker is fired, is laid off, or quits. The severance package may offer you benefits in exchange for signing. The severance agreement may require you the release any claims you have against the employer and even impose harsh terms on you, such as limiting your ability to find work in the same industry. Our attorneys can help you know you rights before signing a severance agreement and help you negotiate for better terms and more compensation.
