Practice Areas > Severance Agreements
Terminating an employee need not be an adversarial process. On many occasions, an employer and an employee arrive at the joint decision to end an employment relationship. In such case, it makes sense to enter a written agreement spelling out the parties' obligations. An employer will often require a complete release of claims. In exchange, the employee will often seek compensation, benefits, and an understanding of his or her right to a job reference. The parties should negotiate the extent to which any non-competition or non-solicitation covenant extend beyond the employment relationship. As with most legal documents, employers and employees should seek to understand their rights by seeking counsel.
