Severance Agreements

Severance agreements are more than just a “thank you” payment from an employee

Companies aren’t required to offer severance agreements, but those that do will have different sets of policies and guidelines for how severance is handled.

Severance Agreement Practice Area

If you need help interpreting, negotiating, or pursuing an employment or severance agreement, our team can help

The best time to know your rights and leverage your bargaining power is BEFORE you sign an agreement, NOT afterward.

In states like Tennessee and Missouri, most employees are considered “at-will” which means they can be fired for any reason at any time. Also, most employees receive no additional compensation when they are terminated. Let us negotiate a release of claims, a non-competition or non-solicitation clause, trade secret confidentiality, or other terms your employer may request, to ensure you receive severance or separation pay in return.

If you are negotiating a new employment contract or the end of your current job and want more information about a severance agreement, we have the answers you need.

Employment Agreements/Severance Agreements

Our lawyers can help you interpret, negotiate, and pursue claims under employment agreements and severance agreements.  The time to know your rights and bargaining power is BEFORE you sign such a deal NOT afterwards.

There are a number of clauses and terms contained in such agreements that can have a huge impact on your rights.  Sometimes those clauses and terms can be modified via negotiation.  In any event you should fully understand them before you sign them.

If the other side does not live up to its obligations under such an agreement, our lawyers can represent you to pursue your benefits and protect your rights.  Call us today at 901-737-7740 you want to put us to work for you.
