The model transaction agreements (also known as compromise agreements) will be made available to you free of charge below. They are all up-to-date and comply with the Equal Opportunities Act and other relevant laws. Remember that every case is different, so every transaction agreement will be different. An employee who is faced with the possibility of termination without notice for serious misconduct may be willing to enter into a cash settlement – work that offers the employee, during the investigation phase, a neutral agreed employment instead of seizing his chances of taking disciplinary action in a week or two. However, settlement agreements can also be used to resolve existing disputes with employees without the employee leaving the company. In case of early release, in case of voluntary dismissal (usually with increased compensation), the employee requests dismissal at an early stage of the trial. If the employer agrees to a voluntary dismissal, in exchange for paying an expanded package to the worker and/or allowing him not to dismiss (and pay as a replacement), everything is recorded in a settlement agreement. This will avoid the risk of future litigation. Settlement agreements are usually offered when an employee leaves their job. Each transaction agreement differs and the terms will only be decided once negotiations have taken place. However, a typical settlement agreement understands that if the transaction takes place at a time when the worker sufficiently understands the case against him and appreciates the seriousness of the matter and considers dismissal as a real possibility/probability, a comparison becomes much more attractive.
