Crafting Fair Severance Agreements

Terminating an employee is not always a simple matter. Many workers are entitled to severance agreements that help them out financially until they get their next job.

Many employers choose to offer a severance agreement to departing employees to clearly delineate the rights of the employer and the employees and to protect the employer from future claims.

If you are an employer, proper planning can prevent disputes over severance agreements later on, and if properly crafted, they can help ensure that no other future claims may be asserted by the departing employee. The Golden, Colorado, law firm of Bradley Devitt Haas & Watkins, P.C., is here to provide your business with helpful advice related to your severance agreements.
