If you sign the severance package, I am fairly certain that they will make you sign a release of all claims. before signing the severance package it would be prudent to retain an employment attorney to negotiate the package or review the terms of the package. Otherwise, they could obtain a release of al liability of any potential retaliation claims for a very low amount. If you want to preserve you right to file a lawsuit for retaliation, I would seriously consider having someone review the terms of the severance agreement to make sure yo are not releasing those claims byway of signing the severance package.
