The new Civil Procedure Code No. 1001 may require substantial changes to existing accounting practices. The law stipulates that no provision in an action settlement agreement or administrative complaint may prohibit the disclosure of „facts“ in the context of an application made in this proceeding where the information is „sexual assault“ (1), (2) sexual harassment, (3) workplace harassment or gender discrimination, (4) inability to prevent discrimination on the basis of sex or harassment in the workplace. or (5) retaliation for reporting sexual harassment or discrimination in the workplace. It goes without saying that all employers, particularly those working in several jurisdictions, should be kept informed of legislative developments that jeopardize their ability to obtain undisclosed obligations from their workers under transaction agreements. These developments will influence both the structuring of comparisons on certain types of claims and the final decision on whether or not to liquidate these claims. To comply with the „applicant“ exception, a worker has a „twenty-one day period to review“ an agreement with a confidentiality provision and, even if the worker executes the agreement because such a provision is „the applicant`s preference,“ the worker is allowed to „revoke“ the agreement for a period of seven days after the employee`s performance.
