Severance Agreement Attorneys in Oklahoma City
Severance agreements are employment contracts that outline the terms of an employee's release from the company, including the pay and benefits offered. In almost all severance agreements, there will be a clause that states the employee will not sue the employer in exchange. Employees are not obligated to sign these agreements, although some employers may pressure a worker to do so.
At Mazaheri Law Firm, we can review and negotiate severance agreements for employees and employers. We have broad experience handling agreements across different industries and are well-versed in the unique dynamics of certain fields.
Severance agreements should include clear details regarding:
- Exact date of termination
- Severance pay
- Unused vacation time
- Bonus pay
- Insurance benefits
- Company stock options
- Confidentiality clauses
- Non-compete clauses
Severance agreements can be complex and include confusing language that you may not fully understand. An attorney can help you decipher the legalese and help you better understand the fine details of a contract. There is also the financial aspect of it - will you be walking away with a fair settlement, or will you miss out on essential financial incentives such as extended pay or even extended healthcare coverage? An attorney can review the benefits package and even counter with a better offer. Most importantly, agreements can be negotiated. An employment lawyer has the tact and skill to be able to navigate through negotiations while maximizing the perks of a severance package.
