2020 Releasing Employees & Drafting Separation Agreements

Total Credits: 1.2 Self Study, 0.0 Kansas Credit

Practice Area:
Labor / Employment


When an employee leaves a company, it is often a time for concern for employers.  Departing employees may have had access to valuable information of the employer – client/customer lists, vendor information, pricing information.  How can it protected?  Employees may allege they are due additional salary, bonuses or commissions.  Might they sue?  There may have been issues involving suspected or alleged harassment or discrimination.  What’s the risk of liability?  Employees might be disgruntled.  Can anything be done to prevent disparagement of the company?  Employers often turn to separation agreements to resolve these and other concerns.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to drafting employee separation agreements.

  • Points of potential liability in both voluntary and involuntary separations
  • Salary and benefit issues, severance payments, and payments tied to future performance
  • Enforceable waivers of liability – scope, length and payment issues
  • Confidentiality of important business information post-separation
  • Non-disparagement, non-competition and non-solicitation provisions
  • Mediation and other dispute resolution provisions
