Negotiate Your Severance Agreement From A Position Of Strength
In today’s dynamic business environment, employees cannot rely on their employers to protect their best interests. Whether you are an executive, manager or employee, it is up to you to look after your financial future while signing employment or severance contracts.
At Sam Nicholson Law Office, PLLC, we use our legal insight to defend our Kentucky clients’ financial welfare throughout their careers. Sam Nicholson, our founding attorney, has substantial experience with employment law and contract law. He can help you negotiate from a position of strength and secure favorable terms in your severance agreement.
Why Working With A Lawyer Is Critical
At first glance, the terms of your severance agreement may appear quite generous. It’s necessary to take a deeper look at all the provisions, however, to prevent legal headaches down the road.
As your advocate, Mr. Nicholson can develop an effective strategy for addressing financial issues that include:
- Sick time or vacation time
- Health benefits
- Vesting of stock options
- Outplacement services
Working with a lawyer is critical not only for securing fair severance pay but also for protecting your rights in the future. Your severance agreement may contain terms that waive your right to pursue legal action. If you believe that you suffered from retaliation or discrimination at work, lawyer Nicholson can examine your contract to determine whether it is in your best interest to sign a contract that releases your employer from liability.
When your position has been terminated, you may feel that you do not have leverage in negotiations. You do. Our legal team at Sam Nicholson Law Office, PLLC, can help level the field so you can sign your contract with confidence and move on.
