Drafting and negotiating a severance agreement is a very complex process. If you are separating from your employer, it is generally in your best interest to have any severance agreements reviewed by an employment law attorney. Often, these documents contain a general release in favor of the employer. So, by signing the agreement, you may actually be waiving your right to bring a claim.
When someone is treated unfairly at work or even fired because of disability discrimination, he or she has a right to seek legal recourse. Employees are protected against such mistreatment at the hands of their employers under federal law.
State and federal laws dictate that employees may not be treated unfairly on the basis of their race, sex, age, disability or religion in the workplace. Those who experience workplace discrimination on the basis of these, or other protected classifications, have the right to file a legal claim to seek justice.
