Ohio Severance Agreement Attorney
I’ve just been provided a severance agreement after being terminated from my job. Should I try to negotiate a better deal? Do I really need a lawyer to review my severance agreement?
The answer to this is yes and no. No you shouldn’t negotiate the agreement by yourself. And yes, you should contact an Ohio severance agreement attorney to review the agreement and to advise you regarding the severance agreement. A key to any severance negotiation is determining what negotiating leverage the employee has and can use. Whether the employee has leverage in a given situation involves many complicated employment related legal concepts that should be analyzed by an Ohio severance agreement lawyer.
