Severance Pay Laws in Pennsylvania
If you’ve received a severance agreement from your Pennsylvania employer, you may not know what they are asking you to sign, especially if you are unfamiliar with severance laws in PA. It is a good idea to have any Pennsylvania severance agreement reviewed by an experienced employment attorney before agreeing to or requesting any changes.
While severance agreements in Pennsylvania may offer you severance pay, insurance, or stock plans, these agreements are designed specifically to protect your employer. Non-disparagement clauses, non-compete clauses, and non-mutual releases often work in your employer’s favor and may have future financial and legal impacts on you. That’s why it’s vital to analyze the specifics of the agreement before you sign.
Severance Lawyers will review your severance agreement, help you translate the legal ramifications of the outlined terms and better understand severance laws in PA, and ensure that the terms are agreeable to both you and your employer. Whether you need a labor lawyer from Philadelphia or Pittsburgh, we’re here to help you protect your rights and receive the maximum benefit from your severance agreement.
Your Rights in Pennsylvania
Severance laws in Pennsylvania can be confusing. The state does not require employers to offer a severance package, but they will enforce payment once an agreement has been reached. Because severance pay is often viewed as a gesture of goodwill and because employers will often pressure employees into signing an agreement, some employees will unwittingly enter agreements that negatively affect them.
Every employee should take time to negotiate their severance packages with severance law specialists to ensure that they’re receiving an agreement that best suits their needs. While a payout may seem desirable, there are often hidden terms and conditions that strip you of legal rights that can impact your finances and career. You deserve everything you’re entitled to—and an expert who can defend your rights.
