Has your California employer provided you with a severance or
separation agreement? Many California employers provide their employees upon discharge a
separation agreement. Although they are not required under California law they are a powerful tool for California employers. In most cases the employee receives a small amount of
separation pay and in exchange the employee waives all of their California employment rights to sue the employer for
wrongful termination such as age
sexual harassment, or even wage claims.
If you have been provided a severance agreement or separation agreement from your California employer it is vitally important that you have an experienced California employment lawyer review the agreement and in some cases negotiate a better
severance amount for the waiver of your potential legal claims.
