The employee/employer relationship can benefit greatly from agreements that clearly lay out the rights and obligations of both parties. Similarly, when the employment relationship ends, a fair severance agreement can make the termination more acceptable to everyone.
At Cross Law Firm, S.C., we negotiate, draft and review employment agreements and severance agreements. With more than 35 years of legal experience, we know how important it is for these agreements to be fair to the worker, providing adequate compensation and protection of their rights.

Severance Agreements in Wisconsin
If you are being terminated from your job and you have been offered a severance package, you should speak with our lawyers before accepting the offer. Many severance agreements have general releases, meaning that once you sign it, you are not allowed to bring a lawsuit against the company. We will analyze the agreement to see if more favorable terms are possible and if the compensation provided to you is adequate. Often, if you have a potential claim against the company, we can negotiate a larger severance package for you.
Even if your employer does have a formal severance plan, it may still be possible for our attorneys to negotiate severance pay for you.
