THE BENEFITS OF A SEVERANCE AGREEMENT
Both California companies and employees can benefit from negotiating a severance agreement. Even when not technically required to offer a package, the company wins because they are often released from further liability. The employee wins because the transition is smoother, they leave without having negative feelings about the company and they can transition into their next role on solid footing.

SETTLEMENT AGREEMENTS HAVE DEADLINES
Settlement agreements are confidential. They are typically unique, meaning no two are exactly the same. There are time limits and deadlines that you must meet when signing and accepting an agreement. These can vary from a couple of days to a week or several weeks. It is important to sign and agree before the deadline, but that does not mean you should rush through the process. An experienced employment law attorney will help you understand what is negotiable and even when to ask for an extension of a deadline should you need it. We can guide you through your California employee rights.
