Severance Agreements For Victims Of Workplace Discrimination
If you have been the victim of sexual harassment, employment discrimination or racial harassment, you may be in a position to negotiate a favorable severance agreement, by agreeing to forgo any future legal action against the employer.
Alternatively, you may be benefit more, both legally and financially, by filing a discrimination or harassment lawsuit against your employer, detailing the alleged discrimination or harassment you experienced in the workplace.
