Detroit Severance Agreement Lawyers
A separation agreement is essential to satisfactorily concluding the employment relationship without time consuming and expensive litigation.
The key is having an experienced employment lawyer – a Sommers Schwartz employment law – ensure that the agreement and any potential litigation are handled properly.
Separation Agreements – A View from Both Sides
For the terminated employee, understanding your rights and entitlement to post-termination compensation and other benefits is critically important to your ability to find your next job and, in the interim, to provide for your family and meet your ongoing financial obligations.
For the employer, reaching an amicable resolution of all outstanding issues arising out of an employment termination allows the business to move forward and focus on the future.
Multiple issues arise in connection with the termination of an employment relationship including:
- Severance pay
- Accrued benefits, wages or vacation time
- Accrued bonuses or commissions
- Entitlement to unemployment compensation
- Release of claims and liability
- Restrictive covenants (including non-compete, non-solicitation, and confidentiality provisions)

We draw from our extensive knowledge and expertise to draft, negotiate, and finalize separation agreements, helping our clients achieve their goals.
