It is important to hire an attorney to review a severance package. An experienced employment law attorney can help you review the terms in the document your employer presented to you to sign. You want to make sure you are not waiving rights unnecessarily or leaving money on the table.
There are many parts to a severance document. Cooperative provisions, confidential information, restrictive covenants, proprietary information, non-disparagement agreement, future references, release of claims, employee benefits, and severance payments.
The Coleman Law Firm can review the document and discuss the situation with you.
