Call 215-322-6990 to speak with a PA Severance Package Lawyer today!
Severance and “severance packages” are often viewed as a benefit to the employee. However, there are many instances where an employer offers severance to an employee in order to limit the employer’s exposure to liability. An employer limits its exposure by making payment of the severance contingent upon the employee signing a release of claims. In most cases the signing of the release and payment of severance bars any subsequent claim by the employee against the employer for matters covered by the release. This is one reason why it is crucial to speak with an experienced PA severance package lawyer prior to accepting a severance package.
