Understanding Severance Package Laws
Every employer has a different policy or view toward payment of severance, and the law does not typically require that employers provide severances to their employees. Employers may inform their employees about available severance packages, but generally do not have an obligation to do so. You should follow up with your employer to determine your options regarding severance.
To Take Legal Action, Contact Donati Law, PLLC.
Severance packages are often reduced to writing in the form of a severance agreement. Your employer may require you to waive any potential legal claims you may have against it in exchange for severance compensation. If you believe you are faced with any of these issues, you may be able to sue your former employer to get the proper severance benefits and other damages. We can help you take legal action against your employer. We are proud to have been named by U.S. News among the Best Lawyers "Best Law Firms" in 2013.
