Severance & Separation Agreements

A severance or separation agreement is a contract between an employer and an employee that specifies the terms of an employment termination. If either the employer or employee breaches a severance or separation agreement it can lead to a lawsuit or arbitration. We have a wealth of experience representing clients in these proceedings and working to negotiate settlements to these disagreements.

Outten & Golden attorneys in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, or Washington, DC will carefully review and evaluate your severance agreement to ensure all potential issues are addressed, including the adequacy of compensation, the coverage for health insurance, and other benefits of the job.
