Employment Separation & Release Agreements

An employment separation agreement is a written contract that details the terms of an employee’s separation or release. In addition to detailing many important non-monetary terms and conditions, this contract also dictates the release of claims against the company by the separated employee in exchange for a payment of money, usually referred to as separation pay, severance, or settlement payment.

In situations where an employment release agreement is not drafted properly, it can trigger several sensitive legal issues. At Halpern & Scrom, we work with our clients through the separation process to ensure compliance with laws regarding release of claims, right to representation, notice, and other requirements that cannot be overlooked.

Halpern & Scrom can help ensure that your employee termination agreement and release process is fair and legal, but also reasonable, understandable, and enforceable. Let our skilled attorneys provide you with the legal advice and assistance you need to ensure your employment separation agreement fully protects your interests. Contact us today.
