This handy guide describes when you expect a transaction agreement, what it should contain and what are the key factors that influence how much you need to receive. As a general rule, it does not matter if there is a "reason for withdrawal" in a transaction contract. However, if both parties are bound by confidentiality, it may be helpful to agree on what you will tell your friends/colleagues and future employers about the reasons for your departure. The frequent reasons are "redundancy" and "mutual agreement," but some agreements do not mention the reason for the withdrawal at all. It`s important to determine what your employer will tell future employers about your work and why you left - for example, by skinning the wording used in each reference they provide. Waiver: Your employer wants to make sure that the agreement prevents you from asserting your rights against your employer. The agreement generally defines rights that are waived (i.e. termination and/or infringement). Anyway, there will often be a huge list of statutes that you agree to waive any claim right. That’s the way it goes. However, your employer cannot force you to waive your right to claim personal injury that you did not know at the time the contract was signed. Nor can you waive your right to acquired pension rights or enforce the actual terms of the agreement. Be realistic, but don`t be afraid to ask what you want, especially when it`s not just about money.
For example, employers will sometimes provide written apologies as part of a transaction contract. A very important point is that, in order to be valid and binding, the transaction treaty must meet a number of legal requirements, including that it must be written and indicate specific complaints that the agreement is being settled. Why does the transaction contract contain a long list of irrelevant receivables? An agreement under which you waive your right to invok a work application can only be recognized by law if a certified lawyer, union or advisor signs it.
