Compromise Agreement Negotiations

September 15th, 2021

A “settlement agreement” is sometimes called a “compromise agreement,” but legally it`s the same thing. After going through a few rounds of negotiations with your employer and if the package offered to you as part of your transaction agreement is not what you wanted, carefully discuss with your lawyer what the different costs and benefits are for signing your transaction agreement or refusing the transaction agreement and possibly the process. If you discuss this in detail, you can make an informed decision about what you want to do in the future. Paul and his team are always happy to answer any questions regarding your employment contract or the negotiation process. On the same day, you offer advice on whether the proposed billing is appropriate and, if not, what your options are. Otherwise, it can be interpreted as accepting the decision made, which will negatively impact the potential success of your claim and impact your ability to successfully negotiate a good comparison package as part of a transaction agreement. Your settlement agreement must meet certain legal requirements to be valid and binding – make sure your lawyer verifies that all the conditions are met before signing them (as you don`t want to find out later that your settlement agreement is not binding or valid). An adequate redundancy process must also be followed. If this is not the case, you are in a stronger negotiating position during negotiations on transaction agreements.

If you go to your employer, if labour lawyers represent you, they will be much more attentive to what you are saying, and that will really relegate them to the background in the negotiations. If you have been offered a settlement agreement (previously known as a compromise agreement) or if you are about to enter into negotiations for a settlement agreement with your employer, you may be wondering what steps you can take to achieve the best possible outcome for you. A settlement agreement is often a better option than a remedy in the labour court, both for you and your employer. If your employment contract contains clauses that prevent you from working for a competitor or negotiating with your employer`s clients. You can request a clause in the transaction agreement that exempts you from these restrictions. This will help you find an alternative job. Your employer may want to guarantee a clean and simple exit, an agreed and neutral announcement to your colleagues and clients regarding your departure, a confidentiality agreement or a smooth transition to your successor. . . .
