Legal Question in Business Law in California
I was just recently laid off along with four other co-workers. The company claimed they were restructuring. Two weeks later they posted ads for all our positions. We signed a letter for severance pay which says we can not file legal claim against them. Do we have any rights?

California is an "at will" employment statement, meaning they probably could have let you go without a severance. Look at the severance agreement and see if it contains a waiver of rights under Civil Code Section 1542. If it does, that's probably going to hold up in court even if you did have claim.
