San Jose Severance Agreement Lawyers, Wage, Bonus, and Commission Attorneys
If you're looking for a law firm that can help you negotiate a severance package, or you need an attorney who can fight wage, bonus and commission disputes, contact the San Jose law office of the Briski Law Firm.
Severance Package Law
In general, companies are not required to pay severance. Often, however, they will pay severance either as a standard policy, or when they realize they have violated the law, and are trying to terminate you by means of a severance package, or to “package” you into a company wide layoff.
They key is to determine whether a public policy has been violated, whether there is some underlying age, or racial discrimination, or if you have asserted other rights, and they are retaliating and trying to get rid of you.
Our attorneys are well-versed in employment law, with years of experience helping numerous clients in a wide range of employment litigation issues. Because we have the employment experience, we can leverage that into negotiating your severance package.
This is especially true if you believe you're being laid off because of your background, such as your age, gender, or race, or if you have a history of complaining about harassment. Because of our experience in this area, we can help you obtain a better severance pay package so you aren't left out in the cold.
Wages, Overtime, Bonuses and Commissions Attorneys
In general, if you are terminated, your company must pay all wages, bonuses, and commissions immediately. If they do not they may be subject to penalties and attorneys fees. Surprisingly, many employers simply decide that they don’t want to pay your hard-earned commission, bonuses, vacation pay, or overtime, simply because they don’t feel like it. Rest assured that you are entitled to it. Our lawyers will assist you in asserting your claim.
Bonuses and Commissions
Our litigation attorneys can also help with bonus and commission disputes. If you've been let go of your sales job before you are scheduled to receive a big commission, we will help you get your money. We can make sure that your case is considered under the line of California law that deems unconscionable employment clauses that say you are not entitled to a commission after you are let go from a job, especially when it is just before a big deal is about to close.
Let us put our employment law experience to work for you when you have an issue over severance pay or your commission. Contact our law firm today for your free consultation.
