Protecting Employees Rights From Severance Agreements in Contra Costa, Alameda, Solano, and San Joaquin Counties
The paperwork you sign when you leave a job is just as important as the paperwork you sign when first starting, if not more so. In a legal document known as a “severance agreement,” there can be many sections of fine print that can dramatically impact your post-job life. Too many people breeze past these agreements, but it’s vital that you have your severance documents looked over by a qualified severance agreement attorney before you sign anything. When ending a period of employment, there are several terms that you must negotiate, in order to protect yourself moving forward, since your employer will be doing the same. No matter what your situation is- whether you’re about to leave a job, or you left a while ago and now you’re having legal troubles, come to Ratner Molineaux, LLP.
A severance document isn’t just about money. In addition to details about a potential financial package, the agreement’s language also encompasses things like: money owed to you or by you, health and retirement benefits, intellectual property/proprietary information guidance, non-disparagement clauses, non-compete requirements, cooperation provisions, and release of claims clauses. Basically, this agreement spells out your obligations to your former employer, and its terms will affect you many years into the future. This is why it is so critical that you consult with an employment attorney in Contra Costa, Alameda, Solano, and San Joaquin Counties, before signing this contract. Ratner Molineaux, LLP knows the complexities of severance contracts, and can give you the guidance you need, to move forward with confidence.
