Negotiating Employment Settlement Agreements 2024

Description

Negotiate settlement agreements to resolve employment relationship problems. Prepare terms of settlement to protect your organization.

Most employment relationship problems are resolved through a section 149 Record of Settlement agreement.

Settlement agreements are confidential and full and final of all employment relationship issues. Resolving employment relationship issues through a Record of Settlement can reduce stress for both parties.

In this webinar, find out how to prepare the terms of a Record of Settlement with confidence.

We will focus on the legal and practical points to include in settlement agreements, so you can protect your company property and reputation.

We will answer your questions around terms of settlement agreements, such as:

  • Why is it best practice to resolve matters through a section 149 Record of Settlement certified by a mediator?
  • How can you ensure your settlement agreement is full and final of all employment relationship issues?
  • Which terms are mandatory in a Record of Settlement?
  • How can you protect an employer’s property and reputation through terms of settlement?
