Help With Severance Agreement Disputes
In recent years, more and more employers have been forced to scale back by terminating some of their most highly paid executives. At Markowitz & Richman, we represent executives and business leaders in matters related to severance agreements.
We advise our clients on their rights and options by helping them review and negotiate severance agreements. Representing people throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey, we put our extensive knowledge and experience behind the legal counsel we provide.
Should I Accept My Employer’s Severance Package?
Deciding whether or not to accept a severance agreement can be complicated. In Pennsylvania and New York, employers have no obligation to provide severance pay to their employees, but they often do so to avoid potential litigation. In exchange for benefits and pay, they often ask employees to give up their right to sue over matters such as employment discrimination.
At Markowitz & Richman, we understand that people who turn to us need the services of a lawyer because they often face difficult decisions. Our clients come first and our focus is on helping people, especially when they need it most.
We also help people with concerns related to employment contracts and related documents, including noncompete agreements or nondisclosure agreements, which may be unfairly incorporated into severance agreements by some employers.
