Mutual Separation Agreement Template South Africa

In this case, a separation agreement was reached between the parties, which „acquires in full and definitively all claims of any kind, but which arise between the parties.“ The worker also acknowledged in the agreement that he had accepted the agreement without undue coercion or influence and that he had voluntarily and unconditionally waived his right to severance pay and his right to go to any competent authority, including the CCMA and/or the labour tribunal, to obtain remedies arising from the agreement against his employer. It confirmed the labour tribunal`s finding that the blocking of judicial appeals, i.e. the waiver of another remedy under the reciprocal whistleblowing agreement, was nothing more than a means of effect of a final settlement agreement. She also cited the barkhuizen/Napier [2007] ZACC 5; 2007 (5) SA 323 (CC) with respect to the test, in order to determine whether a contractual clause (s) is contrary to public policy; The employee went to the labour tribunal and claimed that he was harassed to sign the agreement, and he signed it against his will and under duress, and that the terms of the agreement restricted his constitutional right to go to court and were therefore contrary to public order and not valid. However, don`t be upset too soon, many employers don`t realize that when they enter into reciprocal separation agreements with their employees, such an agreement must meet certain requirements in order to avoid future appeals. The court then found that the agreement was unconstitutional, and the Tribunal found that there was no violation of Article 34 of the Constitution (the right of access to justice), as the worker had fully understood the consequences of the contractual restrictions on the separation contract. The Labour Tribunal found that the separation agreement between the parties constituted a valid concession and rejected his application. The employee then went to the labour court. The Labour Tribunal decided that a separation agreement should be considered legally in the same way as any other agreement. Finally, the question of whether a worker can waive his right of appeal (right of access to justice) against his employer was decided by the Constitutional Court as not against public order (bonos mores) and, therefore, legally. However, it is important that employers and workers who actually choose to enter into a mutual dismissal agreement, among others, should make such an intention clearly to fully implement the waiver. In order to avoid ambiguities or their partial application, it is recommended that appropriate legal advice be obtained when considering the conclusion of a reciprocal termination contract.
