Proactive Representation

In our experience, employees usually have a combination of three interests when bringing a severance agreement for one of our employee rights lawyer to review:

PROTECT INTERESTS

You may have no problems with your employer, but just want to make sure that there is nothing in the complicated agreement that is harmful to your interests.

NEGOTIATE AGREEMENTS

You may believe that the employer’s reasons for terminating you were unjustified, and would like an experienced employment lawyer to negotiate a higher severance payment.

ASESS & STRATEGIZE

You may believe that you were wrongfully terminated and want an assessment of whether you have a case. Buchsbaum & Haag can offer an opinion about the strength of the case and whether it would make sense to reject the severance offer in favor of litigation.

The WARN Act

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act is a federal law enacted in 2003 that protects the rights of workers in massive layoffs or relocations.

Under the WARN Act, employers laying off more than 50 employees in a 30-day period are required to give 60 days’ notice.

If you believe your rights have been violated under the WARN Act, we can discuss your case with you and take any necessary legal action.
