Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I was just laid off from my company and given a severance agreement.  What is this and do I have to sign it?

A: A severance agreement spells out the conditions for a job termination, including what pay and benefits are offered to the employee. There is no requirement that an employer offer this.  In exchange, the employee usually must agree not to sue the employer.
