Should an employee sign a severance agreement?

When an employee is terminated, an employer may offer a severance agreement that sets forth pay and benefits in return for a worker surrendering something, such as the right to sue. Some things should be carefully considered when employers propose severance agreements.

Non-compete agreements for current employees

Some employers try to have new or prospective employees enter non-competition agreements before hiring. However, they may also have existing employees enter a non-compete clause in new employment contracts. Employers offer these agreements to avoid disputes over employment terms and to protect themselves after a worker leaves or is terminated. Businesses may rely on non-competition clauses to assure that a worker does not disclose confidential information after they leave that employer or use this knowledge while working on their own or for a competitor.
