Employee severance arrangements, used properly are a great tool for managing a former employee’s post-termination activity, and, particularly for minimizing your liability. They can also be a trap for the unwary.  For example, an improperly drafted release agreement could be invalidated and of no effect. Some severance packages are subject to ERISA.
