Separation Agreement And Release Of All Claims
Sometimes, however, employers want to enter into the separation agreement before the termination date. In this case, the separation agreement may include the obligation to sign a second authorization after the date of termination. This second release would cover all claims related to practices that occurred during this transition period between the first and second signing of the contract. The extent of declassified rights must be carefully monitored in order to comply with applicable state and federal laws. In most cases, employers want the release to be formulated as far as possible and cover all known or unknown claims from the „beginning of the period“ until the date of execution of the agreement. While as broad an unblocking as possible is generally desirable, some claims should not be waived in a declassification agreement – and it may be against the law to request the waiver of those rights. . . .
