Before I respond to your inquiry, I must state that we have not spoken, I have not reviewed the relevant documents and facts, and I do not represent you. Therefore, my discussion below is not a legal opinion, but is informational only. Finally, my discussion applies only to issues to which Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey or Federal law applies, unless otherwise specified.

That being said, it depends on whether you are waiving an age discrimination claim or not. If not, then you have the time set forth in the agreement. If yes, then you should have at least 21 days to consider and 7 to revoke your signature. In practice, it is rare for an employer to withdraw an offered agreement because you sign a few days, or even a couple weeks, late - but only if you keep in contact with them to advise them when you'll sign and why the delay.
