I signed a severance agreement in exchange for nine weeks of pay. The company paid me 4 weeks of pay and stopped. The agreement states when severance pay either in full or part is denied, I should get a denial letter staing the reasons. But I never received any denial letter. Assuming severance denied, I filed an appeal for payment and also requested for original plan document.Though they are required to answer within 30 days I did not receive any reply. Can I rescind my agreement for breach of the company and proceed to court on my discrimination claim?

The answer may very well be yes, but because a severance agreement is a kind of contract, an attorney would have to review the agreement to determine your rights under it. You should call us or one of the other fine employment lawyers listed on this site.
