We are able to review severance agreements to determine if certain clauses may ultimately end up harming you.

Why Should You Hire an Attorney to Review Your Severance Agreement?
Severance agreements can be incredibly complex. Your employer is unlikely to continue to offer payment without expecting something in return. Only a skilled Woodland Hills employment contract attorney can help you negotiate more favorable language, better terms, and avoid unnecessarily waiving your rights.
At the Law Office of Payab & Associates, we can look at every aspect of your severance agreement, including clauses related to:
- Severance payment amount, as well as any money owed by the employer
- Benefits, including the continuation of health coverage, 401k contributions, and more
- Non-compete covenants, non-disclosure agreements, and confidential information
- Mutual release of all legal claims on both the part of the employer and employee
- Issues involving non-disparagement of the employer and references
Signing a severance agreement without the assistance of an experienced attorney leaves you open to several risks, including the inability to secure future employment through restrictions on who you may work for, what information you may use, and more. It can also mean accepting a lower severance payment than what is rightfully owed.
