Overview

Many employers think that if they offer severance pay conditioned on certain restrictions that they have eliminated all legal risks, and assume everything is fine-until it's not. For example, do you condition severance pay on promises not to sue and other post-termination restrictions? Did you know that you might be contractually obligated to provide severance pay even if you do not have a written agreement? Did you know that your severance agreement may not protect you as much as you think? Or that it may not be enforceable? Is your severance arrangement subject to ERISA laws? Attend this webinar to learn more.
