The employee is required to revoke any consideration or payments made under the agreement in order to be revoked. In addition to severance pay, separation agreements can also provide for a large number of other benefits in cash and in kind, including: employers usually offer partial (if not exclusive) separation agreements in order to obtain a release and waiver of the outgoing worker`s rights. It is therefore important that an employer understands an appropriate language in order to ensure the implementation of release. First, the separation agreement should clearly communicate the conditions for the worker`s renunciation of rights. If a soon-to-be-fired employee waives their rights, they essentially lose the right to bring future actions against the company. Depending on the wording of the agreement, these may be claims for compensation, labour rights or illegal actions for dismissal.
