Talk to a Colorado Separation Agreement lawyer for help on all matters related to a separation agreement. Staff reduction and downsizing are an unfortunate part of the working relationship. The employer`s decision to detain certain workers while laying off or firing others may result in discrimination against laid-off workers. To minimize the risk of potential litigation, many employers offer money or benefits to outgoing workers in exchange for a waiver of liability for all employment rights, including claims for discrimination under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (“ADEA”), Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and the Equal Pay Act (“EPA”). To check the terms of payment of final salaries when an employee is separated or fired, use the link below. The employer may have additional financial obligations to the worker because of the termination of the relationship. In “III. Severance pay” will determine whether the employer will make payments to the employee after the end of the employment period. If the employer is not required to make payments in addition to the employee`s normal wages, mark the box with the words “No severance pay.” If the employer is required to make an additional payment to the employee, check the “Single Payment” box and enter the dollar amount that has been disputed by the employee as severance pay and enter it in the first empty line of that choice. If this is the case, continue with “A” in this selection and report if additional severance pay is given to the employee. If not, check the box entitled “No Different Severance Pay.” If so, check the “Other Sections” box and indicate what such severance pay is in the empty line provided. If the employer expects it to be more than a severance pay, leave the first two unmarked options in this selection and mark the “Multiple Payments” box.
They must also define the dollar amount of each payment the employer must make to the employee on the empty line after the dollar date with the last calendar date, if these payments can be made under the terms “Ending On”. Then determine the frequency of these payments by checking the box “Week,” “Bi-Week,” “Monthly” or by filling out a specific calendar in the empty line provided. Once this has been done, you take care of item “A” in this choice, either by marking the box with the inscription “No other severance pay” or by indicating “Other severance pay” and then by indicating the additional severance pay that the employer must make available to the employee. In the following article, “IV. Restitution of the property,” we will report whether the employee must return the property to the employer. If the employer does not have such a requirement for the worker, mark the box with the inscription “No obligation.” If the employee is supposed to return the item to the employer, mark the “Employee Liable To Return” box, which requires a manifest of the item that the employee must return, entered the empty line after the words “… Returned to the employer. If the employee needs to return these items after a given calendar date, report that calendar date for both spaces in item “A) Return Date.” The following article will also require our attention.
