Severance Pay in Arizona
If your Arizona employer has recently terminated your position and offered you severance pay, you do not have to say yes. Despite any pressure you may feel from your former employer, you have the right to carefully consider and negotiate any severance package before signing. An experienced Arizona employment attorney can help you determine the best course of action.
There is no such thing as a standard severance agreement—even within your company, you do not have to accept the same severance terms as another employee. Companies in Arizona are not legally required to provide you with severance pay, so usually, if they offer it to you, it is because they want something in return.
Employers often issue severance packages in order to protect themselves from future legal action. It’s important to know that if your employer does ask you to sign a severance agreement, you have the right to negotiate its terms.
This is why we emphasize the importance of speaking with one of our award-winning Arizona employment attorneys to ensure that you receive the most severance pay possible and the most extensive benefits that you are entitled to.
Your Rights in Arizona
You have the right to take your time reviewing your severance agreement and negotiate its terms. Our Arizona Severance Lawyers can review your agreement, help you identify what you should discuss with your employer, and even negotiate with your employer on your behalf.
What can you negotiate, specifically? Almost anything is on the table. Often, employees ask for more severance pay or the continuation of benefits like healthcare coverage until they find another position.
We can also inform your lawyer of claims you may have against the company if they’ve operated in violation of any employment laws. If your employer wants you to sign a non-compete clause, we can inform them of your intention not to sign. You are not obligated to sign away your right to pursue related employment unless you are satisfied with the terms.
Make an inquiry with one of our labor law specialists today, and we will translate the legal ramifications of your severance agreement and remove anything that does not benefit you.
