We draft and review Severance Agreements on behalf of our clients. Â A severance agreement contains terms and provisions that both employer and employee must follow in the event that an employee’s employment is terminated andÂ severance payÂ will be issued. Â In exchange, the employee agree to release the employer from certain potential claims. Â Possible claims are generally things like discrimination, wrongful termination, and harassment.
It is always a good idea to make sure that any severance agreement is in writing. Â This benefits both employer and employee in that it prevents future ambiguity and creates an agreed-upon course of conduct moving forward for all parties involved. Â Examples of services that we offer for severance include:
