When advising a worker in a transaction agreement, the advisor should be very diligent with respect to personal injury, since any right to personal injury could be worth a huge amount and much more than the compensation offered under the transaction contract, which is intended to compensate the worker only for the loss of his or her job and possible labour law rights. The worker should not sacrifice his right to compensation for his personal injury, as a condition of compensation for the loss of his job, etc. How an advisor does this depends on which of the following 4 categories of claims has been included in the proposed transaction contract:- In order to ensure that the transaction contract includes rights to personal injury that the worker is aware of as part of the attached rights, it is necessary to include in the agreement a clause that expressly confirms that they are. If an insurer provides a sharing document for the execution, you should carefully check each of the conditions to ensure that they accurately reflect the agreement reached in your case. Although the document is often commonly referred to as “release,” it sometimes contains terms that can do more than just release some of the responsibility to the other. If a personal injury dispute has already been initiated, the required formalities must be followed, even if these can still be included in the transaction agreement, for example by accompanying the agreement with an agreed draft approval decision. An employee may accept a transaction contract, even if it infringes on his potential claim. If the claim for compensation has been fully assessed and the compensation offered reflects this assessment and is in addition to the compensation offered under the transaction agreement, it is entirely acceptable to resolve the right to personal injury in this manner. However, if the right to personal injury has not been properly resolved in this way and the employer does ask the worker to sacrifice his right to claim injury in return for compensation for the loss of employment and his potential labour rights, the worker remains free to accept the transaction contract.
