Employment Contacts & Severance Agreements

Identifying legal solutions that work

Our lawyers have substantial experience in drafting employment agreements for key employees, including senior-level managers and high-level executives.

Our lawyers have substantial experience in drafting employment agreements for key employees, including senior-level managers and high-level executives. These agreements have provisions that specifically deal with, among other issues, compensation, bonuses, benefits, termination, and post-employment restrictive covenants. In doing so, we make sure to understand our client’s interests in entering into the employment relationship and any specific risks we need to protect against in securing contractual obligations from the employee.

FMG attorneys routinely advise employers in negotiating an employee’s separation from employment and, where appropriate, draft severance agreements that include full releases of all claims. For employers who are executing a reduction in force, we guide employers through the pitfalls of that process and prepare severance agreements in compliance with the ADEA and the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act.
