NY Severance Lawyers | NY Severance Review and Negotiation Our NY severance lawyers can provide you with a thorough review of your NY severance package and can help you negotiate with your former employer to change or improve the terms of your severance agreement. There is no NY severance agreement law that requires your employer to provide you with severance. However, it is common for in NY to be offered a severance or separation agreement in the event that your employment is terminated without cause or as part of a reduction in force.
In New York, it is legal to include provisions in the severance agreement that prohibit you from competing with your former employer and prevent you from soliciting any customers or other employees. Although you may be told that the severance agreement is a form, that does not mean that it is beneficial to you or that it cannot be changed. A NY severance agreement is binding for many years and could impact your ability to find work. Therefore, we recommend that you contact a skilled NY severance lawyer to review your severance agreement.
Our firm provides these services and we offer two different options: (1) we can review the agreement and then meet or speak with you to discuss the agreement in detail and recommend changes to various provisions; or (2) we can negotiate with your former employer to improve/change the terms of your severance agreement.
Our NY severance lawyers can review your agreement and meet or speak with you within 24 hours of receipt. Please contact us as soon as possible.
