Negotiating the terms and conditions of a severance agreement is important for protecting your rights and interests. In some cases, companies attach restrictions to severance packages that impact a person’s ability to find new work, retain health care coverage or talk about certain things that happened at a company.
Before agreeing to a severance package, consulting an experienced employment law attorney can alert you to what a company can and cannot do and how you can leverage your interests. At The Rubin Law Corporation, our Los Angeles severance agreement attorneys review severance agreements, calling attention to terms and conditions that are not enforceable or contrary to your long-term interests. We also call attention to anything that is a clear violation of California or federal law.
If you are currently negotiating a severance agreement or are being asked to sign one, contact the lawyers in Los Angeles at The Rubin Law Corporation today to learn how we can help you. Call 310-385-0777 or e-mail us today.
