Settlement agreements

Settlement agreements

Sometimes, the termination of an employment contract is the best option, either for economic reasons or personal reasons (culpable actions, improper or disrupted employment relationship). In such a case, it is always preferable for the employer and employee to discuss the conditions of the possible termination of the employment contract. If the parties are able to reach an agreement, they can lay down the associated conditions in a (termination agreement).

Are you about to discuss the termination of the employment contract with your employee and offer him/her a settlement agreement, or are you an employee who has received one from your employer?
