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.
