The agreement generally specifies whether you need to write your notification, if you are placed on garden leave for a certain period of time (i.e.: You stay at home and you are subject to certain obligations, for example. B, not to contact customers/colleagues) or if you are paid in lieu of your termination rights. You should check whether your notice is correct with respect to your employment contract or if you do not have a contractual termination clause, your advisor can confirm your legal notice based on your length of service. It is customary for the agreement to include certain guarantees for the return of the employer`s assets, obligations regarding confidential information and certain confirmations regarding the independent legal advice you have received. You may also be required to ensure that you did not commit an act that would constitute a breach of your employment contract that would allow your employer to terminate without notice and, in some cases, that you did not receive a job offer prior to the conclusion of the contract.

Many agreements contain a provision that allows the employer to recover some or all payments that will be made to you as part of the agreement if you violate your obligations. While such clauses may be unenforceable in some cases (based on the fact that they are penalty clauses), the surest way to manage such a clause is to ensure that you understand your commitments and are able to meet them. If confidentiality is of the utmost importance when entering into a transaction agreement, it would be wise to include an explicit provision, as proposed in this case. We also often see clawback provisions in transaction agreements in the event of an infringement. Employers are advised to review the tax situation when a specific clause, such as confidentiality, is considered an integral part of a transaction agreement. The parties, the complainants and the respondents, entered into a COT3 agreement (“agreement”) in which the plaintiff agreed to drop his complaint against the respondent in exchange for US$15,500 in 47 weekly tranches of $330.
