Can California Employers Require All Employees , Upon Separation, to Execute Severance Agreements Not to Sue the Company?

Required Severance Agreements for Employees Upon Separation:

While severance agreements are not required by law, employees cannot be required to execute a severance agreement as a condition of releasing their employment rights. While it is smart to use severance agreements as a tool to avoid the risk and expense of litigation, it is important to tailor severance agreements to address each employee and matter.
