Employment Termination And Severance Agreements

When an employer and employee must end their relationship, whether voluntarily or involuntarily through termination, complex legal issues can arise. For many businesses, a business employee will sign a severance agreement prior to starting at a company. When there are disagreements over terms of this contract, it is important to have an experienced employment attorney at your side.

Representing Your Best Interests In A Severance Agreement

A severance agreement is meant to provide protection for both the employer and the employee. For example, often times the contract will contain a noncompete agreement clause. This protects the employer from situations such as the terminated employee going to work for a competitor. Employees are protected through severance package agreements.

When there is a disagreement over how an employee was terminated (even though most employee-employer relationships are at an at-will basis), having a lawyer represent the parties involved can help to avoid unnecessary litigation. Our law firm believes in efficiency balanced with thorough legal counsel. However, we are not afraid to go to court and have extensive litigation skills.
