The worker concluded a separation contract with Reckitt Benckiser for the full and final payment of any claims of the parties. The CC concluded that the intentions of the parties were clear, with the worker agreeing to permanently separate from his employer. The CC found that the agreement itself was clear and that a valid compromise prevailed over any other contractual rights the worker might have had. The fact that once signed mutual separation is mandatory can be a disadvantage, especially if the worker has not been assisted by a lawyer. This is due to the fact that an employee is often satisfied with adverse conditions because he thinks it was the only option he had. It is important that the worker has received the necessary assistance before entering into a mutual separation agreement and that he is fully aware of his rights. . . .
