What is a Termination Agreement?

Under a termination agreement, an employer and an employee agree to terminate their employment relationship.

The termination agreement is a settlement in which the parties release each other from their employment claims in return for certain payments or waivers.

While a termination is unilateral (often by the employer), a termination agreement requires the consent of both parties. If there is agreement, neither notice periods nor termination blocking periods have to be observed. In the event of a subsequent complaint, however, it must be clear that the termination agreement is in the mutual interest and not in the unilateral interest of the employer. It is useful to precisely specify in the agreement the mutual rights and obligations of the parties in connection with the termination, in particular about the salary.
