How does the process of negotiating a severance agreement usually begin?
Severance agreement negotiations usually begin with action by the employer. Most of the time, the employer will draft the first draft of the severance agreement and present it to the employee along with the news that they have been terminated. The employer will provide the employee with a limited amount of time (usually 21 days) to review the severance agreement, sign, and return the severance agreement to the employer. It is at this point, as soon as the severance agreement is delivered to the employee that it is critical to contact an Ohio severance agreement attorney to review the agreement and to advise the employee regarding the severance agreement.
