Minnesota Separation    


      Home Page

For employees . . .

If you have recently lost your job, it is easy to feel alone.

Perhaps your employer has offered you a Minnesota separation agreement to review.  If so, you may be eligible to receive separation pay in exchange for releasing all legal claims you may have against the company.
Before signing a Minnesota separation agreement, you should consult with a Minnesota separation agreement attorney.  By signing the agreement, you may be giving up valuable legal rights.  You deserve the peace of mind of knowing what you are signing.

If you have been terminated and your employer has not offered you a Minnesota separation agreement, you may be able to negotiate for one.  If you are the victim of sexual harassment or unlawful discrimination, were wrongfully terminated, are owed unpaid wages, or have other potential legal claims against your employer, you may have the power to negotiate a fair severance payment in exchange for releasing these claims.

This website is sponsored by Trepanier MacGillis Battina P.A. law firm in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  We routinely represent employees who have been terminated from their jobs.  We can walk you through the separation process, review your Minnesota separation agreement and release of claims, and/or negotiate for an appropriate severance package.

A note for employers . . .

Our law firm represents both employees and employers in all aspects of Minnesota and federal employment law, including Minnesota separation agreements, severance pay plans, corporate restructurings, Reductions-In-Force (RIFs), EEOC discrimination charges, breach of employment contract claims, EEOC charges, and wrongful termination lawsuits.

If you need help drafting a Minnesota separation agreement for your company . . . or if you have terminated an employee who is requesting severance pay, consult with an experienced Minnesota employment law attorney. 

Special laws govern the release of employment-related legal claims.  Thus, in order to be enforceable, the release of claims contained in your separation agreement must be carefully worded.

In addition, you should ensure that your Minnesota separation agreement does not inadvertently waive other contractual rights, such existing non-competition or non-solicitation covenants.

As an employer, you are invited to schedule an
Initial Minnesota Separation Agreement Legal Consultation. The consultation covers up to two (2) hours of legal assistance for the flat fee of $500.  During the consultation, you can discuss any other employment law questions.  Please review the Terms and Conditions here, and contact our firm to schedule your consultation.
