Entering into a severance agreement can result in a waiver and release of legal rights. These agreements often contain complex and technical legal language. Moreover, there are federal and state laws which may have specific application to a severance agreement, including the time frame for response, which is crucial.
Therefore, it is very important to have experienced counsel, with employment law knowledge, to review a severance agreement and to help you understand it. A well-qualified employment attorney can also assist in you in any follow-up communications with an employer.
