Layoff / Severance Agreements


Long Beach Lawyers Protecting Clients During Layoffs


Assisting in Reviewing and Negotiating Effective Severance Agreements


For more than 20 years, we have vigorously protected clients’ rights during layoffs. We are devoted to helping employees maximize the value of severance agreements to help them get through difficult times in their careers.


Companies are getting aggressive in drafting separation agreements, compelling employees to waive certain rights upon either voluntarily leaving or being discharged. We are ready to aggressively protect you.


Do you fear a layoff is looming at your company? We have an in-depth understanding of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) and will vigorously protect your rights. Contact us today to schedule a convenient appointment.


What Can We Do for You?
At Andrea Cook & Associates, we aggressively advocate for clients to prevent them from giving up any rights upon leaving their jobs. Since 1994, we have carefully reviewed with clients the terms of their severance agreements, while explaining the benefits and drawbacks. We strive to help clients negotiate the best terms possible for their severance agreements or severance packages, and we are well-prepared to help you.


Employment Contracts
The attorneys at our firm also handle the negotiation of other important employment contracts. Some employers request employees to sign a contract at the beginning of a job. Once you have hired us, we will thoroughly review contracts, explaining legal terminology and helping you negotiate terms of the contract that may not be in your best interests. If your contract includes a non-compete clause, it is especially important that you seek the guidance of an experienced lawyer.
