The possibility of a severance pay dispute

When a company goes through the process of downsizing, it is not uncommon for them to offer employees severance pay.

While not always the case, most companies request employees to sign a release, stating they will not sue the company, in exchange for severance. By signing such a document, you may be banned from making any type of legal claim against the company, such as one on the basis of discrimination.

There are times when employees are terminated within the legal limits of the law. There are also times when a worker is wrongfully terminated. There are federal laws in place to protect workers from discrimination due to age, gender, race, religion, disability, national origin, or pregnancy.

In some cases, an employee may feel that he or she was unfairly targeted for termination or downsizing. Whether or not you are offered severance pay may or may not impact the way you move forward. Some people are okay with being terminated, as long as they get paid in return. Others, however, fight against this as they wanted to keep their job.

In the event of a termination, there is always the possibility of a severance pay dispute or related lawsuit.

If you or a loved one is faced with this type of situation, don't wait to learn more about your rights. The decisions you make now can impact you later on. Our website can help you better understand wrongful termination, severance pay, and other related details. For more advice, read through our "Boca Raton Attorney For Workplace Retaliation" webpage.
