San Diego Law Firm Provides Detailed Analyses of Severance Agreements

California attorneys help terminated employees evaluate their options

Losing a job can be incredibly stressful. The emotional and financial pressure you face is not conducive to making careful long-term legal decisions. Yet this is when many dismissed employees are presented with severance agreements where payment is offered in exchange for a waiver of your legal rights. If this happens to you, a Kased Law Group lawyer will evaluate potential claims against your employer so that you can have the knowledge you need to make an informed decision.

Thorough San Diego counselors assess potential claims

To determine whether a severance payment compensates you fairly, you need to understand the likelihood of a successful lawsuit against your employer. Our California attorneys can quickly evaluate potential legal actions and what you might be able to recover by alleging:

  • Discrimination based on age, sex, religion or membership in another group protected under federal or state law
  • Violation of an employment contract
  • Refusal of an employer to follow the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Consideration you will receive for executing a noncompete agreement
  • Unlawful retaliation for reporting employer misconduct

Our knowledge of state law and compensation obtained by plaintiffs in similar situations is crucial to an informed decision as to whether the severance payment is adequate.

Lawyers protecting your rights under California employment law

A severance agreement can be challenged even if you’ve already signed it and received the payments. Illegal acts cannot be justified by terms in a severance agreement, and unreasonable concessions are not usually enforceable. Many courts recognize that dismissed workers are often desperate for payments and might have signed away their legal rights under duress. If you believe you were unfairly coerced, we can advise you as to whether you can reopen the matter.
