If you seek advice from a lawyer on a transaction agreement, but decide not to accept the proposed terms, you may still have to pay all legal fees. Your employer`s obligation to participate in your legal fees is only valid if you sign the transaction agreement. Your lawyer will explain the consequences. Why does the transaction contract contain a long list of irrelevant receivables? For example, you informed colleagues of your negotiations before seeing the confidentiality clause and they understood that you had to keep the existence of the agreement confidential. If you sign a clause that you have already violated (or if you violate the clause after signing) and your employer finds out, they may argue that they no longer need to respect their side of the bargain. You can refuse to pay compensation or even try to recover money they have already paid you. Comparison agreements in the context of employment (formerly known as compromise agreements) are legally binding agreements that can govern most legal labour rights, including wrongful dismissals. They are often used as a means of ending a employment relationship and settling any employment rights a worker might have. Although this is not a requirement, you can include the “reason for termination” in the transaction agreement. This can be important if you have income insurance that only pays in certain circumstances.
Some directives state that the reason for dismissal must be dismissal in order for payments to be made, so it may be important to include it in the agreement.

HR Tip: Before proposing a billing contract, check the employee`s registration to see if there are any potential problems that could cause complications. For example, have they filed complaints about a subject that could amount to discrimination or possible whistleblowing as an informant? For a transaction contract to be valid against you, it must refer to certain sections of labour law.
