Severance agreements are common in situations where an employee is leaving a company. Often, the company will offer the employee a lump sum or other remuneration in exchange for a promise not to sue.
At Employment Law Office of John H. Haskin & Associates, LLC, our experienced employment lawyers will review your severance agreement and help you determine whether entering into a severance agreement is the best option for you. We will also assist you in receiving a fair amount of compensation.
The Benefits Of Working With Our Lawyers On Your Severance Agreement
As our client, we can examine any proposed severance agreement and make sure that it will not harm you. Some factors we will look into include:
- If your original contract contained a severance agreement, does this new agreement promise you more benefits or less?
- What type of benefits will you receive? For example, will you be able to stay on your employer's health insurance plan?
- If your employer wants you to release any claims to potential legal action, will the employer do the same?
- Does the agreement contain a noncompete agreement, and if so, how restrictive is it?
When you are facing the difficult choice of whether to sign a severance agreement, obtaining the right legal representation matters. We are one of Indiana's premier employment law firms for a reason. Let us put our experience, skills and resources to work for you.
