Severance Agreements

Severance or separation agreements are crafted to protect employers from future liability following the voluntary or involuntary termination of an employee.  For some executives and professionals, a severance agreement is established in conjunction with an employment agreement at the onset of employment for possible use in the future.  For most other management or rank and file employees, a severance agreement is created at the termination of employment.  Regardless of your situation, the advice and guidance of an attorney can help you ensure that your severance agreement maximizes benefits to you and minimizes the effects of the loss of employment.

Robert has reviewed and negotiated hundreds of severance agreements for employees in wide variety of industries including information technology (IT), pharmaceuticals, contract research organizations (CRO), medical devices, health care, banking, non-profits, manufacturing, financial services, and broadcasting.  There is no requirement for a business or employer to provide a severance payment or benefits. If benefits are offered, you will be required to release or give up any claims you might have against the company.  Every situation is different and an experienced attorney like Robert Crawford can help you through the process.
