Severance Agreement


Asked on Jun 14, 2023

Severance agreement and non-disparagement clauses?

I recently left my job and was offered a severance agreement. In the agreement there were two clauses, a non-compete clause and a non-disparagement clause. I am concerned about the implications of these two clauses and how they will impact my future career prospects. I am looking for clarification on the language of the clauses and what I am allowed to do, and not do, once I have signed the agreement.

I have drafted hundreds of non-competes and non-solicitiations (usually for the employer - always better to hire the other side when hiring lawyers). Thus I can provide you a review of the agreement in light of your career, and suggestions for improvement.
