Severance packages are often offered by employers to allow an employer to make a clean break with an employee. But there is a catch. The employer will almost always require the employee to sign a “release of all claims” in exchange for the severance agreement. This may be simply a formality in some situations, but in others, the employer may actually know it has violated the law and is attempting to insulate itself from liability “on the cheap.” You may be able to collect a larger severance, a cash bonus, stock options or more insurance benefits.
