    Product Description

    An employee separation can be fraught with legal pitfalls, traps for the unwary, and stress for both the employer and employee. It is rife with potential legal issues, such as legal rights under any employment agreement or collective bargaining agreement; and potential claims under state and federal laws and the common law, including claims for discrimination, retaliation for engaging in protected activity—like whistleblowing, statutory violations, violation of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, and more. There is a risk of error relating to the separation process itself, including failure to provide final wages/accrued vacation at the time of termination and addressing any post-employment covenants not to compete. 

    For an employee, the process can be overwhelming and opaque—particularly with respect to any legal rights the employee can or could potentially exercise. 

    Join us online for a comprehensive discussion of best practices for minimizing legal risk and safeguarding legal rights during the period leading up to and including the separation process.
