Severance Agreement Cooperation Clause
For example, ask that the worker acknowledge in the agreement that he or she does not have an accident at work. This would normally be subject to a limited period (from six months to one year) and should not apply to general applications for employment that are not specifically addressed to workers with whom the worker has not worked. For example, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals (which includes Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota) recently rescinded a waiver agreement because it was confusing to the employee. As the court suggested, the OWBPA requires that an unblock be drafted in clear and clear terms – not legally! In this case, the worker attempted to obtain clarification from the employer`s lawyer on two apparently contradictory provisions – authorization and the obligation not to pursue the provisions. However, the lawyer was “not comfortable” to see clearly. .
