Severance Packages in Virginia
If your job has recently been terminated, your employer may have presented you with a severance agreement. In Virginia, this agreement typically includes severance pay that may involve a lump sum or payment installations, which are determined at the employer’s discretion.
It is important to note that employers do not usually provide severance agreements in order to help their employees. Rather, employers offer severance packages for their own benefit, to protect themselves from the future possibility of litigation. This is why it is important to review everything before you sign.
Because employers provide severance packages to protect themselves, you should consult with an experienced attorney to ensure you are receiving the most gain for your cooperation. Our Virginia Severance Lawyers will review your agreement and work to negotiate the best terms for you. This can include asking for more severance pay, added benefits such as health insurance, or negotiating for a different last day.
We can also translate the legal ramifications of the document you’re being asked to sign so that you don’t make any unnecessary concessions. For example, some companies may ask that you agree to a non-compete clause. This may prevent you from working a job for a certain amount of time, using your knowledge with a competitor, or working within a certain geographic area. Our labor lawyers in Virginia can help negotiate the removal of clauses that don’t benefit you.
Your Rights in Virginia
While your company is not legally obligated to offer you a severance agreement or severance pay in Virginia, if they do present you with an agreement, you have the right to negotiate. Not only can our lawyers advise you on what to say, but we can also eliminate the potential fear you have of speaking to your former employer. If we are conducting severance negotiations on your behalf, we can handle all communications with the company, so you don’t have to.
Some severance agreements can be confusing and offer you little benefit. You don’t have to settle for a “standard” agreement and a low amount of severance pay in Virginia. You deserve all that you are entitled to, and we will review and negotiate your agreement to protect your rights. Don’t feel pressured to sign, and call us to improve your agreement terms.
