Negotiating Your Separation Agreement And Severance Package

For more than 30 years, Lawrence N. Lavigne has represented workers across the state who have faced termination or needed the assistance of legal counsel in the evaluation, negotiation or preparation of their severance packages and separation agreements.

Severance packages are common financial agreements between an employer and employee in case the employee is later terminated. For many employees, a severance package contains a waiver of substantial rights; after signing it, you lose your ability to sue the employer for further compensation.

Lawrence N. Lavigne will listen carefully to your objectives, respond with facts and options you should be aware of, and smoothly guide you through the complexities of a severance package offer. He can also help you decide if it meets your needs.

What is the difference between a separation agreement and a severance agreement? A separation agreement may or may not involve severance — a dollar figure. Instead, separation agreements include things like the employer's promise to give neutral references, a waiver of noncompete contracts and other contractual items. A severance agreement is an agreement by the employer to pay the employee a set amount of money.
