Negotiating for an Employee-Friendly Result
Generally, employers write separation agreements in their favor. For example, severance contracts often prevent employees from taking legal actions against their employers and include noncompete clauses.
Our law office can review your severance agreement to determine whether or not it is employee-friendly. If it does not support your interests, we can negotiate with your company for a different result. In many cases, this means negotiating for a higher severance amount.
Did You Refuse To Sign Your Severance Agreement?
Employees have many reasons for refusing to sign severance agreements. Sometimes, the severance agreement is simply unfair. Other times, the severance agreement is an employer's attempt to avoid a lawsuit.
If your employer has acted unlawfully and you refused to accept a severance package, we can help you file a lawsuit against your employer. We have experience with a wide variety of employment claims, such as:
- Wrongful termination
- Whistleblower claims
- Employment discrimination
- Sexual harassment
- Wage and hour violations
