How to end things

A termination letter is usually the last step in an employment relationship. For employers, it’s an opportunity to explain why you're ending an individual's employment, and outline other details about the termination. This written record can help protect employers with any questions or legal issues arise regarding the termination. Common elements of a termination letter include the reason for termination, the “lead up” to termination, how company property will be dealt with, details on how benefits will be handled, such as vacation time and medical insurance. For employees, it’s important to understand your termination letter. The terms within the letter may determine if you’re eligible for unemployment benefits and the recourse, if any, that you have to contest your termination. Speaking with a termination letter lawyer can help preserve and understand any legal rights you have.

The benefits

Protect your future self 

Most employers will turn to an attorney to draft their employment contracts. It only makes sense for you to have a termination letter lawyer review the same contract.

Have an attorney to turn to 

There’s a good chance you’re going to like your attorney from LawTrades and want to keep using them. Perfect - now you have a legal expert to turn to when in need. 

Understand your rights 

A termination letter addresses topics like disclaimers and severance. You run the risk of waiving certain rights when you go and sign a termination letter before having a termination letter lawyer tell you exactly what you’re signing.

Working with my lawyer assign Jon H. was very easy and seamless. He was quick, attentive and answered my questions and concerns in a timely manner. Definitely recommend you and his services.

Great experience all around, LawTrades was just so much more personal and much better than other startup/online on-demand solutions for legal work,. Almost feels like I handpicked and hired the attorney myself. The Attorney was available to answer questions by phone or text message, so was the LawTrades rep who set the whole thing up. And when setting up new entities you always have questions, so this was a big deal for me. The Attorney assigned to my project was available on demand to help out explain things every step of the way and I think the guys at LawTrades have done a great job with making you feel extremely comfortable. After all was done I even got an email and a call from one of the co founders of the company to make sure I had a seamless experience. I never got a call from other companies I had used in the past like Legal zoom and the whole thing always felt so automated. Yes, granted Legal zoom probably have way more clients than Lawtrades and as such would not be feasible for their management to call everyone, however, that was a nice touch which I do appreciate. I will definitely be heading back to Lawtrades whenever I require legal assistance.

Frequently asked
questions

Do I need an attorney to draft or review a termination letter?
Not necessarily, but it’s a good idea. While a termination letter itself is not very complex, the preparation and review of one requires time and effort. It’s advisable to analyze the termination letter with your employment contract, employment handbook, unemployment laws in your state and other relevant resources. An experienced dismissal letter lawyer can do all of this in a timely fashion in an attempt to avoid unnecessary legal action.
Are termination letters used when terminating at-will employees?
Yes. Although at-will employment allows employers to terminate their employees for any reason, it still cannot be for an illegal reason like discrimination or whistleblowing. A termination letter can be helpful for clearing up any uncertainties and serve as a device in court to prove a legal reason for the termination.
Can an employer hold my last paycheck until I return company property?
No, your employer can't withhold your final paycheck until you return company property. However, your employer may be able to deduct the cost of unreturned property from your paycheck. States have differing laws on these types of deductions from final paychecks so it’s smart to consult with an employment attorney to understand your rights.
Is an employer required to provide a reason for terminating an employee?
There is no federal law that requires an employer to provide a reason for firing an employee. However, some states have laws that require employers to provide the reason for termination upon the former employee’s request. This is called a “service letter” law.
If I am laid off, does my employer have to pay me severance?
There is no legal requirement for employers to pay severance to terminated employees. In most cases, this is a voluntary decision that the employer makes in its discretion. However, an employee may be entitled to severance pay if he/she has an employment contract guaranteeing severance. Also, if the employer has a company policy (e.g., stated in an employee handbook) to pay severance to workers then you may be eligible under certain circumstances.
