We recommend that you speak with one of our experts when preparing a transaction agreement. It is a record of the conditions on which both parties have agreed to settle any claims that the worker has or may have in relation to his employment and dismissal; including the amount of the dismissal and, in some cases, the joint declaration that is made to inform the company of the worker`s departure. Subject to the terms of any agreement, the employer agrees to pay the worker a fixed amount of money, also known as a compensatory sum. In return for the amount of compensation, the worker agrees to waive any rights he may have against the employer for the termination of his employment relationship. Very often, a transaction contract contains such a language that the employee confirms that he has not taken unauthorized copies of company documents or documents.

Independent legal advice prior to the implementation of a transaction or withdrawal agreement is supposed to ensure that the worker concerned fully assesses the consequences of signing the contract. Such a requirement may be violated to the extent that it is required by a judicial or judicial decision or by the administrative authority of the state within the framework of a competent court. As a general rule, the employee has some leeway or flexibility to report or notify the existence of the transaction contract to direct family members, lawyers and other professional advisors. There is no obligation to accept a transaction contract and if you refuse to accept the proposed terms, you can claim all the claims you have against your employer in the usual way. A transaction agreement generally contains a clause that the agreement itself is not construed as an admission of a violation of a law or law by one of the parties or as a violation of an employer`s obligation or obligation to the worker. It is essential that both parties enter into a transaction agreement without the other being held liable. Very often, a transaction contract contains a clause requiring the worker to compensate the employer and compensate the employer for income tax, contributions or PRSI contributions related to the payment of termination under the agreement. As a general rule, parties working towards a transaction agreement will do so without prejudice. In essence, this means that neither party can rely on the negotiations or conditions that will be presented until all the conditions are agreed.
