How Illinois Employers Can Use Severance & Release Agreements When Firing Employees: Do’s and Don’ts (Teleseminar)

When: Thursday, April 29, 2021, 2-3 pm

Presented by Attorneys Nancy Joerg & Tony Caruso

Probably the most fear-filled question that clients ask our law firm is: “How can I fire a high-risk employee without endangering our company?!” This is the teleseminar which will answer that question with “easy to grasp” advice. We will discuss how offering severance to an employee in exchange for the employee signing a release of claims is an effective way to help avoid potential litigation. Practical tips will be provided-– no LEGALESE allowed!

We will cover:

  • How severance agreements can help protect your company.
  • What must be in severance agreements under the NEW ILLINOIS LAW and how to present and negotiate the terms?
  • What are the legal requirements for severance agreements for employees overthe age of 40?
