Severance Packages in Washington
Finding out that you’ve been terminated is a scary feeling. In Washington State, companies may offer an employee a severance agreement upon their departure. The language within these agreements can appear confusing, and your employer may ask you to sign the document right away. Don’t feel pressured—you have the right to take your time.
Companies typically have everything to gain from you signing the package, but it may not be in your best interest. Employers provide severance agreements in order to protect themselves from future legal action. This is why you should consult with one of our Washington State labor lawyers. We know what the law permits and how to negotiate terms in your favor.
Our Severance Lawyers may be able to negotiate for more severance pay, continuing health insurance for you and your family, or pension and stock options. If you may have reason to seek future legal action, we will also make sure you are not waiving your right to do so.
Your Rights in Washington
While employers in Washington State are not legally obligated to offer you a severance package, you have rights that your company cannot ask you to waive.
