Obtaining & Negotiating Severance Packages And Agreements To Protect Your Future

Employers may offer a severance package to terminated employees. Severance agreements can be hard to understand and may not be in your best interest. The attorneys at Shulman Kessler LLP can assist you during this stressful time and ensure that your interests are being protected. We provide one-on-one meetings with an experienced attorney who will review and negotiate your severance agreement and aggressively work to achieve your goals.

The attorneys at Shulman Kessler LLP will work to protect your income and future employment options. We will also make sure you are not waiving potential legal claims. Shulman Kessler has represented employees on Long Island and throughout the New York Metro area and nationally since 2010.

Evaluating All Possible Options After A Termination

A severance agreement is not always a "take it or leave it" situation. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your termination, our attorneys may be able to negotiate better severance terms, including more money and continued health coverage. We can also ensure you have positive employer recommendations and references as part of your severance package.

The legal team at Shulman Kessler LLP believes in a detailed and individualized approach to explore all your options. We will aggressively negotiate on your behalf. We are here to work side by side with you to achieve your goals.

Non-Compete, Non-Solicitation, and Confidentiality Agreements

Many employment contracts and severance agreements contain clauses preventing you from working in your chosen field or soliciting former customers. These prohibitions can have a negative effect on your future employment. We can advise you if these restrictions are legal or just your old employer protecting its interests by preventing you from earning a living.

Helping You Make Informed Decisions

Employment contracts and severance packages consist of many different components. Our attorneys can assist in resolving each issue at hand and reducing the possibility of future conflicts.
