Severance Package

At the end of the employment relationship, whether because of a layoff, resignation, or termination, it is often necessary for an employee to consider many important issues, like the continued payment of health benefits and the amount of compensation included as part of a severance package.

While the financial compensation an employer offers is important, an employee needs to understand all of the terms and conditions of a severance package. Because severance agreements are drafted by employers, they tend to include many non-economic terms that protect the employer. Most severance agreements require the employee you to waive certain rights, including the right to sue your employer on any grounds. There may also be a non-compete provision in the agreement that affects an employee’s ability to work in the future. It is often difficult for an individual employee to fully evaluate the fairness of the severance package offered.

Client Testimonials

“I very much enjoyed meeting and working with Bill Mills on a fairly difficult and complicated matter. He showed a tremendous amount of sensitivity, understanding, compassion and patience during the times that we really needed it. Bill was very knowledgeable, confident, and resourceful. He was also extremely thorough, open, honest, and persistent in his efforts. Bill did not leave any stone unturned which made it possible for us to have a successful outcome. I highly recommend using Bill Mills and his firm.”

- Robert James

“Bill Mills is a fantastic trial attorney and the consummate professional. He is a tireless advocate, always well prepared, and genuinely cares about each and every client. I have had the privilege to co-counsel with Bill on two major cases, both of which resulted in excellent recoveries for our clients. Bill is a delightful person and a  pleasure to work with. I look forward to our next case together.”

- Irv Cantor, Attorney in Richmond, Va.

“I came to Glenn, Mills, Fisher, and Mahoney with an extremely difficult legal dilemma that seemed impossible to resolve fairly and favorably. I was completely floored–and relieved beyond belief–when Carlos Mahoney called the next day to let me know that he had found a way out of the morass. It was a brilliant solution. Mahoney and his assistant made a truly awful situation much easier to deal with because of the integrity which they brought to the work. They answered all my questions promptly. They never dropped the ball, and were always up to date on the issues when I called, which was no small feat, since the matter had many moving parts and extended over several years. Through it all, Mahoney offered truly wise counsel, making sure that my emotions did not get in the way of my interests. He also guided the case toward a conclusion that was far better than I ever hoped or imagined. I cannot recommend the firm more highly.”
