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)

Sommers Schwartz’s employment lawyers provide unmatched legal representation in this area. We draw from our extensive knowledge and expertise to draft, negotiate, and finalize separation agreements, helping our clients achieve their goals. Driving negotiation and reaching agreement is rarely easy, so it is essential to have Sommers Schwartz in your corner.

Contact a Sommers Schwartz attorney today to confidentially discuss your case and learn how we can help.

I wanted to thank you.

I wanted to thank you for your assistance in resolving the matter with my employer. You listened to my complaints, kept me involved, provided guidance and were diligent.

Andy Dragovic is an outstanding trial attorney!

I needed representation from an attorney who was empathetic and effective. Andrija Dragovic proved to be that attorney time and time again. He was clearly dedicated to finding justice, explored my options every step of the way, and respected all my decisions regarding the case.

I will confidently recommend Sommers Schwartz.

You were on a short list of attorney’s I considered to represent me in this matter based on your standing in the legal community and I have no doubt that your reputation brought this matter to a resolution more expeditiously than a less highly regarded attorney would have been able to accomplish.

Mr. Watkins showed he was a great lawyer.

Mr. Watkins showed he was a great lawyer by the way he handled the case. He always kept me informed and the entire team was professional. I would highly recommend him and the firm.

You are outstanding!!!

I was so impressed with your knowledge of the law and the way you were able to step back and look at all the options while explaining it to me in layman terms. I would recommend you to anyone who is or has been a victim of workplace harassment, discrimination or any other employment issue.

I was and still am satisfied with your firm.

I was and still am satisfied with you and your firm. You believed in me and believed that I was wronged by [the defendant]. You listened to my input and suggestions. You understood what I was up against and justice was served. Thank you for working with me.

I really appreciate your help with this case.

I really appreciate your help with this case. I’ve never been in a situation like this, and I expected a longer process. My wife and I really value what you did for us.

I want to thank you for your excellent representation.

As unpleasant as the matter was, I truly enjoyed working with you and felt very well represented throughout. If I should be aware of someone in need of employment law advice, I will be certain to recommend you.

I will always appreciate your professional approach.

I believe that you were very professional. More important, you were patient with respect to my lack of experience in this situation. You took time to explain why one path was better than another. You listened carefully and offered sound advice and counsel.
