Employment, Severance and Separation Agreements
What are employment, severance and separation agreements? Anytime you as a potential, current or former employee are asked to sign an agreement, it is in your best interest to understand the ramifications of doing so. Whether that agreement occurs at the beginning of an employment relationship or it is designed to bring about the conclusion of your employment, The Crone Law Firm, can review and negotiate the details to provide as much protection as possible.
Employment agreements that guarantee a certain amount of compensation for a fixed term have become rare. Rather, many employees are being asked to sign agreements that are one-sided and attempt to protect the employer. These agreements contain noncompetition clauses, non-solicitation clauses and clauses that require the employee to give up ownership over his intellectual property. While the details of these agreements are not always negotiable, we nonetheless can review the agreement for a client, explain the terms, and offer our opinion of how the terms will be interpreted and could be applied in real world situations.
Severance agreements usually involve a cash offer and sometimes extended benefits in exchange for a release of all claims the employee may have against an employer. Our experienced team will review your case and advise you if the money and benefits being offered are sufficient to justify the release of your claim. If you fall into a protected class, we will take care to determine if the decision to terminate was illegal discrimination. If we determine that the package can be improved, The Crone Law Firm, will engage the employer in negotiations to that end.
Regardless of the situation, we try to present as much information as we can to help the client make an informed decision that is most beneficial considering all circumstances. Contact The Crone Law Firm.
