Why does the transaction contract contain a long list of irrelevant receivables? Confidentiality clauses are common in transaction agreements. They generally mean that the parties promise not to make prejudicial statements about each other. This would prevent you from making damaging comments in the press or on social media about your employer, even if you are telling the truth. It could also prevent you from reporting abuse as whistleblowers. Your lawyer should explain the consequences carefully. It is not necessary. As long as you or your employer can email us a copy of the contract, we can help you by phone. You should have the agreement in front of you during the call and allow between 30 and 60 minutes for us to discuss the agreement with you, to inform you of the terms and accept your instructions if you have any.  Finally, see BIS Employment Relations Research Series 123, Employment Regulation Part A: Employer Perceptions and the Impact of Employment Regulation, March 2013 For this point, see the authorities of Caledonian Mining Co Ltd/Bassett and Steel  IRLR 165, EAT (to avoid dismissal, it is a termination); Jenvey v.
Australian Broadcasting Corpn  IRLR 520, HCQBD (there is an implicit clause in an employment contract that, once an employer has established that a worker is dismissed for dismissal, dismissal on another ground entails the worker`s right to contractual benefits that arise when dismissal is due to dismissal, for a reason other than dismissal); and Hartwell v Brand and Jones (1992) EAT/491/92 and EAT/506/92 (October 7, 1993) (reasons of ability contingent on the desire to avoid actual severance pay).  Thompson has experience that employers give the worker 24 hours to accept the offer and draft a signed compromise agreement, or that the offer is withdrawn.  Thompsons has experience in transaction negotiations in which employers enter into an agreement and then demand a compromise agreement that contains provisions not mentioned to date, such as limitation of trade clauses, good conduct clauses, refund/criminal clauses, etc.
