Customer Question

Okay then, I'm still feeling Post Traumatic Stress from a layoff. My real boss retired and the owner took her place. The daily pressure and stress from her was almost like she wanted me to quit the job. I still showed up every day and doing my job very well. Her company was loosing money because of the oil downturn. Still, she's in my face everyday with verbal abuse to me. Can I still sue her for my pain and suffering after I signed a severance agreement?
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Thank you for using Just Answer.

It would depend on the terms of your severance agreement, but it's very unlikely. This is because severance agreements almost always include a waiver/release of claims provision whereby a person agrees, in exchange for their severance, to waive any and all possible claims they may have against their employer, now or in the future.
