Employee severance arrangements can be tricky business. For example, an improperly drafted release agreement could be invalidated and of no effect. Some severance packages are subject to ERISA. Some employers find themselves ordered by a court to provide severance pay or benefits even though they do not have a written severance agreement and never actually intended to provide any severance benefits to their terminated employees. This webinar examines the most up-to-date strategic, legal, and financial considerations employers need to consider with regard to offering (or not offering) severance arrangements to terminated employees.
