This program will provide you with a real-world guide to planning, negotiating and drafting settlement agreements in employment disputes.  It will address settlements arising from clams of harassment, discrimination and retaliation as well as claims arising from the economic terms of employment contracts, including disputes over discretionary bonuses and sales commissions.  The program will cover how mutual releases of liability depend on the nature of the underlying claim – harassment and discrimination versus economic terms of an employment agreement – and the crucial task of defining the scope of these releases. It will also outline practical steps lawyers can take to enhance the ultimate enforceability and effectiveness of these agreements to minimize a client’s risk after the agreements are executed.

  • Practical drafting of settlement agreements in employment disputes
  • Financial terms of settlement – how payments are structured and taxed
  • Waivers of liability and mutual releases – settlements based on harassment/discrimination v. contractual disputes
  • Privacy – non-disclosure and non-disparagement agreements
  • Handling of evidence gained in employment investigations
  • Practical steps to increase enforceability & decrease post-execution dispute
