When an employer decides to terminate an employee, the employee may receive an employment separation or severance agreement. These contracts offer compensation in exchange for waivers the right to pursue legal action against the employer for violations of federal or Minnesota law, including wrongful termination, workplace harassment, employment discrimination or retaliation, or breach of an employment contract. Our Minnesota employment attorneys negotiate separation or severance agreements on behalf of both employers and employees.
If you received an employment separation or severance agreement, our Minnesota attorneys can negotiate the agreement and ease your burden during this difficult time. In many situations, separation and severance agreements are fully negotiable, and our attorneys can assist clients in obtaining fair closure to their employment relationship.
