Severance Dispute Attorney
Should You Sign A Release?
Florida employers often offer severance payments to employees when companies go through downsizing or outsourcing. To receive severance, you are typically asked to sign a release promising not to sue the company. Signing this agreement could bar you from filing a discrimination or other legal claim against the company.
If you have been offered a severance agreement, wrongful termination attorney, William Julien, offers a free initial consultation to discuss your situation and advise you of your rights. For a free consultation, call 866-569-7398 or fill out the contact form on this website. We represent terminated employees in West Palm Beach, Miami and Fort Lauderdale and throughout the state.
Were You Terminated Unfairly?
Federal law protects workers from discrimination in the workplace on the basis of race, gender, age, pregnancy discrimination, religion, disability and national origin. If older workers, female workers, workers of color or other protected classifications were unfairly targeted for termination, you may have a discrimination claim against your employer that would result in far more compensation than you would receive under a severance agreement.
If you think that you were unfairly targeted for downsizing or termination, you will be in a stronger position if you contact a lawyer while you are still working for your employer. On the other hand, if we believe you do not have a strong discrimination claim, we can review your agreement and advise you of your rights under the agreement.
