Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
A release is a contract and, just as any other contract, it may be breached by one or both parties. So, if there is a failure of consideration or a failure to perform some other obligation in the release, the release may be vulnerable to being set aside.
While courts will not, generally, get involved in the fairness of the terms, if there was fraud in the inducement then, likewise, the release may be set aside.
Thank you for the clarification. That would not affect my answer.
Are you still online with me?
