Why Should You Attend:

  • Have you ever terminated an employee or handled the aftermath of an employee termination?
  • Do you offer severance pay?
  • Do you use severance agreements?
  • Do you condition severance pay on promises not to sue and other post-termination restrictions?
  • Did you know that you might be contractually obligated to provide severance pay even if you do not have a written agreement?
  • Did you know that your severance agreement may not protect you as much as you think? Or that it may not be enforceable?
  • Is your severance arrangement subject to ERISA laws?

Addressing these areas that are often wrought with ambiguity, this webinar will help participants learn what you need to know to derive maximum benefit from and avoid the pitfalls associated with severance arrangements.

When done properly, severance arrangements can be an extremely valuable risk management tool for employers—but you need to be aware of the pitfalls. Often, employers work under the premise that offering severance pay conditioned on certain restrictions will eliminate all legal risks, and assume everything is fine—until it’s not.

  • Non-Competition Clauses
