Marlton, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/11/2017 -- The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC, a team of workplace disability discrimination lawyers serving Camden County, and its surrounding areas, save their clients thousands of dollars by reviewing and negotiating severance agreements. Typically complex in nature, severance agreements are drafted by employers and contain very restrictive covenant clauses to ensure the employee does not discuss any of the separation agreement terms. Those in need of an employment attorney to review, negotiate, or decipher a severance agreement can trust the Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC to always protect their interests.
While an employer is not required to offer separation agreements upon termination, it is usually provided as a risk management tool to protect them from liability. In exchange for financial compensation from the employer, the employee waives certain claims and rights under a separation agreement. The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC will help determine if the agreement properly compensates the employee for the value of the claims and rights that are waived. These agreements contain extremely restrictive covenant clauses like noncompete and nonsolicitation, specifically designed to keep the employee from releasing information regarding the terms of separation. A noncompete clause could potentially hinder the employee from obtaining similar work in the area; that is why it's important to have a team of attorneys to review the entire agreement upon termination.
The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC will provide the necessary legal advice to those employees who were asked to sign a severance agreement. In fact, instead of signing right away, individuals should consider hiring a lawyer from the Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC. The firm's attorneys always keep their clients' best interests in mind as they seek to maximize the value of the severance agreement and minimize the clients' risk. Separation agreement language is confusing. Let the Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC help navigate through it.
