Have Your Separation Agreement Reviewed by Our Syracuse Team
Severance packages are not required by law, so you may be grateful if you are offered a separation agreement if you lose your job. However, most likely your employer is offering you a severance agreement to protect the company, not to protect you.
Don’t lose your rights by signing a separation agreement you don’t understand. Have your agreement reviewed by one of the Syracuse employment attorneys at Levine & Blit, PLLC. Call 315-366-8055 today for a free phone evaluation
Know What Is in Your Severance Package
You may think that you are signing a “standard agreement,” when offered a separation agreement and severance package. However, there is nothing “standard” about these agreements. Most severance agreements are written to protect the company – and may even contain legal language that takes away your rights.
Separation agreements may include:
- Clauses that limit your future employment options
- Payment of money you were already owed (e.g. vacation time and PTO)
- Language releasing your employer from any future legal claims
