Representing Your Interests in Severance Agreements
Severance agreements are legal contracts between employers and employees they have terminated. These agreements provide the employee with pay and benefits they would not have otherwise received upon being fired or laid off. In exchange, the employee typically agrees to certain terms favorable to the employer’s interests.
These terms can include any of the following or others not mentioned below:
- Releasing the employer from liability for current or future claims involving sexual harassment, discrimination, unpaid wages, and other violations of an employee’s rights
- Non-disclosure provisions and confidentiality agreements that protect internal company policies and trade secrets
- Non-compete, non-solicitation, and other restrictive covenants that limit the terminated employee’s ability to compete with a company’s business interests by operating their own company or seeking employment with a competitor in the same industry
- Non-disparagement clauses that prevent an employee from making negative comments about the company or its policies
While employers are typically the initiating party in severance agreements, employees can also initiate these agreements or negotiate terms if they were offered a severance agreement. No matter which side you’re on, Mark Charles Law, APC and our severance agreement attorney in Pasadena can provide the legal advice and services you need.

We can thoroughly review these agreements and provide counsel so that you’ll have a better understanding of your obligations to the contract. We can also help you negotiate terms should the contract as-is be insufficient in helping you achieve your goals.
