New Guidance on an Employee Waiver in Exchange for Severance Pay

The EECO recently issued guidance on employees' concerns about waiving and releasing possible claims against their employers as part of a settlement agreement that grants them severance pay upon termination of their employment.   While there is nothing in this document that will be surprising to a human resources director, it provides insight as to how the EEOC analyzes the issues in deciding whether or not a waiver should be applied to a discrimination claim filed post-termination.  It's worth a read and keeping on file if you may potentially be involved in terminating an employee's employment.
