Severance Agreement and Separation Packages
There are many considerations when negotiating a severance or separation agreement. Such agreements typically address a broad range of issues, including lump sum severance payments, bonuses, accrued vacation payments, retirement benefits, insurance, employment references, and waivers and releases of potential legal claims that you may have against your employer.
Before signing a severance package or separation agreement it is beneficial to have a legal advocate on your side to review the agreement and to negotiate terms regarding your separation from employment that are favorable to you. The attorneys at the Sass Law Firm are experienced in reviewing, evaluating and negotiating the terms of severance agreements and provisions of separation agreements.
