Negotiating Severance Agreements in Louisville

Our Employment Lawyers Have the Experience You Need

Being fired or leaving a job is not as simple as it sounds. You may have to consider future employment, temporary lack of income, and your family's financial situation. These problems can be resolved in the form of a severance agreement. A severance agreement is a contract that outlines the terms of employment termination. Since these agreements usually request you waive your rights of filing discrimination claims, it's important you receive legal assistance from our Louisville employment lawyers at Biesecker Dutkanych & Macer, LLC.

Severance agreements may cover multiple facets, such as:

  • Request to waive your rights to sue
  • Request to release liability from future claims
  • Money or benefits
  • Non-compete restriction

While severance agreements may include money or employee benefits, these should not be sufficient reasons to sign the contract. Your employer may sneak in statements you may not catch or understand simply due to the complexity of the legalese. We can thoroughly read the agreement and help simplify the terms to help you make an informed decision.

How does the negotiation process work?

As with any contract, the severance agreement is negotiable. Some people are unaware of this fact and end up signing agreements that later have a negative impact on their future. At Biesecker Dutkanych & Macer, LLC, we are experienced Louisville employment attorneys who can help you dissect your employer's agreement and guide you through each provision so you know exactly what to expect if you sign. If you're unsatisfied with the agreement, we can also help you negotiate to maintain your interests.

Contact Biesecker Dutkanych & Macer, LLC and Set Your Own Terms

Employers do not have your best interests in mind and this can result in an insufficient severance agreement. They offer you a severance package to avoid future litigation. Whether it was your employer's or your own choice, our knowledgeable lawyers can make sure you leave on your terms.

  • I am very thankful for his help!

    “I came to this firm after meeting with a different attorney who didn't seem very supportive of my case. When I met with Mr. Dutkanych he was very helpful and empathetic to my situation. My experience was great and I was educated every step of the way on what was being done and what to expect. Mr. Dutkanych was very timely in his responses and kept me in the loop throughout the entire process. I am very thankful for his help! I would definitely recommend Biesecker, Dutkanych and Macer!”
