Can I Bring A Claim Against My Employer If I Have Received A Severance Package?
If you’re given a severance package, you’ll generally be required to sign a release stating that in exchange for payment of money, you agree not to sue your former employer. A common exception to this is if the employer does not hold up their end of the bargain by not paying what they agreed to pay as part of the severance package. If that were the case, then you could move forward with a lawsuit. Similarly, you may be able to move forward with a lawsuit if you are over the age of 40 and your employer did not comply with the Older Worker’s Benefit Protection Act, meaning they did not give you enough time to review and revoke or change your mind regarding the severance package.
What Makes Your Firm Suited To Handle Employment Law Cases In Florida?
Employment is very closely linked to who we are as individuals and our statuses in the community. We understand this, and we treat our clients like human beings. This means that we spend time with our clients both inside and outside of the office; our clients become our family members. I once handled a case that was set for trial around Thanksgiving, and I ended up having turkey and watching the parade with my client.
If I understand my client as a human being, then I will be able to tell their story in a much more compelling way than if I only knew them as a client or case number. I call this method the trial by human method, and although it seems strange at first, developing a bond with each and every client creates a powerful force that resonates with defense counsel, judges, and juries. This is one of the main ways in which our firm is set apart from the rest.
We also work our tails off for our clients because we know it will make a difference. As a relatively small firm, we are agile and able to take cases that we feel are very worthy. We focus on the quality of our cases rather than the quantity, and this allows us to get good results for our clients. At the end of the day, it is our job to tell our clients’ stories and encourage jurors and judges to truly care about our clients. Law school taught us to be very analytical about the law, but we like to emphasize the human aspect of it.
