If you have or have been asked to sign a severance agreement, the Azadian Law Group, PC wants you to understand the importance of getting it properly reviewed. Our severance review & negotiations lawyer will work on your behalf. We understand how important this is for your current and future well-being. Let us bring the experience of our firm to your side as we work to ensure you are being treated fairly.

The importance of reviewing severance agreements

Severance agreements are something that we have all heard of but may not understand much about. Often called separation or termination agreements, these arrangements are made between an employer and employee. While these contracts are legally binding, California employers are generally not required to provide them to employees.

  • If you do have a severance agreement with your employer, it is vital that you have it properly reviewed by a Pasadena severance review and negotiations lawyer.

At the Azadian Law Group, PC, we want you to understand that these contracts are often filled with legal terminology that can be confusing to for a non-lawyer. We will review your entire contract and make sure we explain every detail in terms that are clear to you.

  • You need to know exactly what your severance agreement says.

Why you should have help with negotiating severance agreements

We want to help you with negotiations. When it comes to severance agreements, we can operate either behind the scenes or upfront and on your behalf.

  • By operating behind the scenes, we can “ghost-write” provisions of your severance agreement for you to bring to the table.
  • When we show ourselves and operate on your behalf, we will work directly with your employer’s legal representative.

There are pros and cons to both approaches. In some cases, our clients do not want to have their employer know they have an attorney working on their behalf, and we respect that.

Cases of discrimination

We know that there are times when employers violate a person’s civil rights by discriminating against them based on their race, sex, age, ethnicity, national origin, religion, or disability. In an attempt to avoid a lawsuit, employers will sometimes offer severance agreements in exchange for the person giving up their right to file a lawsuit. These agreements also need to be reviewed thoroughly by your attorney.
