Unpaid severence balance and broken agreement

I have a severence agreement for 4 weeks pay. In the agreement it is stipulated that I will be paid in 2-monthly payments of $2791.50 beginning January 1, 2009 and ending February 1, 2009. I received one full payment and 1/2 of the other payment. I have e-mailed and phoned my employer and he will not answer me. I was not offered pay for my vacation. What can I do if anything.

severance agreements

You can continue to bug your former employer or you can retain counsel to send a demand letter to your former employer to hopefully speed up the proces or you can file a small claims lawsuit. If you do so you are entitled to attorneys fees. you may also be entitled to the unpaid vacation if your severance agreement did not release yoru employer of having to pay those amounts. Would have to see terms of the severance agreement. Feel free to call my office with any questions.
