Severance & Separation Agreements in Arizona

If your employer is terminating your employment, whether by a reduction in force layoff or disciplinary termination, you may be asked to sign a severance or separation agreement. Such agreements require that you waive rights to claims, such as discrimination and harassment claims. Do not sign a severance or separation agreement until you have an attorney review the agreement. The severance or separation agreements must contain certain disclosures for older workers to assess whether they may have a claim for age discrimination.  

You may also be hired under a contract basis. Arizona is an at-will employment state, meaning that you can be terminated at any time for any reason that is not unlawful. If your prospective employer is asking you to sign an employment contract, your employment is no longer at-will, and it is in your best interest to have an attorney review your contract so that you understand the legal implications of such a contract.
