Minnesota Severance Agreement Topics

Severance agreements in Minnesota often include non-compete agreements, non-solicitation provisions, confidentiality clauses, and non-disparagement provisions. They may be further complicated if the employee worked in multiple states or the company operates in multiple states, because of overlapping or conflicting state laws on subjects covered in the severance agreement.

Under Minnesota law, the terminated party (employee) has a period of time to consider the agreement before making a decision. Further, a severance agreement cannot waive certain employee rights or claims, because statutory law supersedes what parties may write in their severance agreements.
