Threat to rescind a Severance Agreement

I was my position was eliminated and I was given a severance agreement 3/16. My employer the decided they were going to modify it, and took until 3/30 to get me a new agreement, which I signed that day. today I got an email telling me that they needed some information and if they did not get it by EOB, they would rescind their offer. Can they do this????

Offer and acceptance makes contract enforceable

When you signed the agreement that your employer presented to you, you accepted an offer. This makes the contract enforceable. If the employer tries to back out of the agreement because you didn't provide some information that the contract did not require, you should consult an employment attorney about filing a claim for breach of contract.
