Without question, 2020 has gotten off to a rocky start. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced most of the nation into quarantine and wreaked havoc on the U.S. economy. This has unfortunately led to business closures, company downsizing, and in some cases mass layoffs.
If you have fallen victim to one of the above scenarios and have concerns about your rights, or questions regarding your severance package, non-compete, or non-solicitation agreement, you should call an attorney. An experienced attorney will provide a thorough review of your agreement, walk you through your options, and fight on your behalf for any overlooked entitlements. They may also be able to negotiate better pay or a continuation of healthcare benefits for a period of time to help bridge the gap between jobs. Sadly, some employers are exploiting the pandemic and taking advantage of their employees in the process. Don’t be a victim. Let an experienced employment attorney fight for you.
