The split could be inevitable, and you might already know that you will soon be leaving your place of employment. But what about a severance agreement and/or a severance package? If the terms of your separation haven’t been decided yet, then you still have the opportunity to negotiate a fair settlement.

The majority of people don’t realize this, but most all severance agreements are, in fact, negotiable. And while you might be too shocked or too emotionally drained to try to negotiate your own, you do have a right to legal counsel. That counsel could be the difference between signing a severance agreement that unduly benefits your employer and signing one that compensates you for the time and energy you’ve  put into your job.

Severance agreement vary from employer to employer, and person to person, but typically include clauses pertaining to:
• severance payments
• severance benefits
• release of claims
• restrictive covenants
• non-disparagement
• references
• confidential and/or proprietary information
• cooperation provisions
