Moses & Singer Obtains Early Dismissal of a Claim for Severance

November 3, 2020

Kimberly Klein and John Vincent Baranello obtained a dismissal, with prejudice, of a complaint filed in New Jersey State Court, whereby a former employee of our client alleged he was entitled to severance despite failing to timely execute the severance agreement within the twenty-one day expiration period set forth in the agreement.    

The pre-discovery dismissal is an important win for employers and highlights the importance of well-drafted severance agreements.  A copy of the decision can be found here.
