Alternatively, an employer may insert a clause to remove the offer. These clauses require the worker to guarantee, i.e. to promise that he has not received a job offer (and to subordinate the payments to what is the case). The employee cannot sign the agreement as it is, because it would be false and would risk the payments. Requesting a change or distance is the best option, but it may also be withdrawn. Your lawyer will be able to advise you on the best communication strategy based on your particular circumstances. Below is an example of clauses typically present in most transaction agreements:- Restrictive agreements: If you have restrictive alliances in your employment contract, these will likely be confirmed in the transaction contract. It is important to ensure that the restrictions set out in the agreement are not greater than those in your original employment contract. It may also be possible to negotiate a reduction or, in some cases, the total removal of certain restrictions or restrictions. Where restrictive alliances are new, they also need to be checked to see if they are too heavy and if you agree with them. If you have bonuses or commissions due, the amounts owed must be specified in the agreement. A lawyer should check your contract to ensure that all contract bonuses and commissions are paid in full. Pension: If necessary, payments to your pension fund must be continued until the termination date and, if a payment is made in lieu of a termination, your employer may be required to continue to contribute for an equivalent period of time, depending on the contractual terms.
If you choose to pay part of the compensation to your pension, this must be included in the transaction contract, otherwise you will not be able to benefit from the tax-free nature of the payment to your pension.
