Termination decisions are always challenging for employers. You may want to graciously gratuitously offer compensation to a terminated employee to ease their transition to a new job. When making such a severance payment, it is a good business practice to have the employee sign a severance agreement to prevent almost all future litigation that may arise. It is important to note that some claims cannot be waived.
The Parzivand Law Firm advises employers of the litigation risks of terminating employees and also provides them with a legally applicable severance agreement to mitigate risk.
