Severance agreements outline the compensation and benefits you’ll receive after leaving a workplace in the event of termination, retirement, resignation, furloughs, or a lay-off.

There are several instances where your employer may offer a severance package. For example, your contract or company policies require an agreement to end employment, or your employer is trying to soften the blow of an involuntary termination resulting from situations out of your control. Either way, when it comes time to leave your position, it’s crucial that you have someone knowledgeable in your corner to evaluate your options in terms of severance agreements.

It will also include any contractual obligations you must fulfill to receive your benefits. For example, you may need to sign a confidentiality agreement or a non-compete agreement with your employer.
