What happens if you refuse a settlement offer?

What happens if you refuse a settlement offer?

What happens if you refuse a settlement offer? Like any offer, if you do not accept it, then it goes away.  With that said, you can refuse a settlement offer if you have legal leverage to demand a higher price.  You would need to create a detailed factual narrative about how you were retaliated against for filing an internal or external claim and/or discriminated against because of age, sex, race, disability etc.  You would then need an employment attorney to investigate your facts and provide advice about the value of your claim(s).  We can help because all we do is employment law and negotiate severance or settlement every day.
