Should New York workers sign employment contracts?

Severance agreement may hurt future New York work opportunities

A severance agreement, also known as a separation agreement, governs the terms of the separation of an employee from his or her employment at a company. One reason a company in New York might want to give you a severance agreement is to minimize the chance that you will file a legal claim against the company. You might also receive this type of agreement if the company wishes to give you severance pay for being a long-term or loyal employee.
