Departing employees who are asked to sign severance packages now have a new tool to discover if those packages comply with federal law. The EEOC just unveiled a new guidance document, Understanding Waivers of Discrimination Claims in Employee Severance Agreements, that is expected to cause more people to question their severance packages—either to HR or to a court.
The Q&A document is written for employees and describes when and how employees—after signing a lawsuit waiver in exchange for severance pay—can still file discrimination charges with the EEOC and invalidate the waiver. Read the document at www.eeoc.gov/policy/docs/qanda_severance-agreements.html.
