Considerations and Legal Issues relating to Separation Packages for a Departing Employee
May 3, 2018 –
Separations from employment present a minefield of overlapping statutes, regulations, and internal policies and procedures. They are often emotionally charged for both the employer and the departing employee. Jeff Siegel and Desiree Murphy of Morgan, Brown & Joy, LLP are experienced management-side employment attorneys who will discuss when an employer should consider proposing a separation package for an employee, the types of clauses and options available to employers when presenting or negotiating a separation package, and how to draft legally enforceable separation agreements. They will provide insights and practical experience on how to navigate the legal issues these disputes present and offer suggestions on how to avoid costly litigation and (hopefully) reach an amicable resolution to an often difficult situation.
