Why did she sign it?
How long ago did she sign it?
By signing it she has given up all her rights.
She cannot sue them for anything now.
Because it has been 3 years she is going to have difficulty changing it now.
What she can do is seek advise form a solicitor that practices in Compensation law to look at everything and then give her more detailed advise on whether she can do anything now. The Deed of release will say she cannot sue but if she was bullied etc that may be able to be used to overturn it.
It is going to be hard.
