Few trials end with a judge`s decision. Most court proceedings will end with a transaction that both parties approve. If the parties reach an agreement, the terms of the agreement are explained in a written settlement agreement. An agreement is usually a compromise in which both parties give and accept. This agreement may be written by the parties themselves or with the help of a neutral person, such as a mediator, arbitrator or other agents. Negotiations do not have to be face to face, but often the most successful way to negotiate is personal. There may be reasons why you do not want to meet personally with the other party. In this case, you can use a mediator to act as an intermediary. You and the other party can agree by phone calls, emails, text messages or letters. No matter how you do it, be sure to submit your final agreement in writing. You both have to sign it. A draft transaction contract may be submitted to the worker (with the registration “without prejudice and in accordance with the contract”) and invited to be advised as soon as possible and to resign from the employer.

Although this is a draconian and risky approach, employers sometimes dismiss workers with immediate effect (or with a redundancy payment) and at the same time hand over a draft transaction contract with a time frame in which they can react. The employer simply invites the employee to a meeting at a time favourable to both parties. In most cases, the employer does not wish to inform the worker in advance that the purpose of the meeting is to discuss billing. On the other hand, it may be useful to refer to the underlying issue that led the employer to submit the offer and to point out that it is an informal discussion on this issue. You can try to agree at any point in the court process before you have a final decision from the court. An agreement could be reached at the courthouse, for example. B at a preliminary hearing or other hearing scheduled by the judge, or outside the courtroom prior to a hearing. An agreement can also be reached. You can.

B arrange a meeting with the other party in another location or talk by phone. For more information on different billing processes, see Mediation and other billing methods. A good solution is to create solutions that meet, to some extent, the needs of both parties. Its solution may not be perfect, but it should be beneficial to all concerned. Over time, the parties are more willing to comply with such a transaction than at the behest of a judge. Avoiding a combative trial may be better for your relationship with the other party, especially if you have children together, if you agree on one of your contentious issues, write and set aside the resolution.
