Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
You have a few options including seek an apology, damages, compensation from the offending party/company. Let me get more specific!
Legally you have a right to pursue them. HOwever, if the allegations were settled and the settlement expressly bars you individually from pursuing a claim, then you cannot. If it does not address that, you may. Often a settlement includes the company's principals and agents, which could include you, so you want to confer with the company to make sure everyone is on the same page, and perhaps the company will take care of it.
Let me know if that is fast and clear.
You want to see the settlement. If the settlement is just binding on company and doesnt cover you, then you able to proceed. If they released your claims wihtout your permission, then you may still proceed since you didnt consent and/or demand the company cover your compensation for wrongly releasing your claims. To start, you need to see if company released your claims or not in the agreement.
Kindly rate me 4 or 5 stars.
If you didnt sign a release or the agreement, I dont see you being barred from proceeding, but you still want to double check and make sure the agreement isnt waiving any of your rights.
Being mentioned is not enough to affect you, there has to be an express release from you of your claims.
From what you mentioned, it sounds like that didnt happen and you can proceed.
Kindly rate me 5 stars.
Bonus not required but always appreciated.
Kindly rate me positively.
Thanks in advance.
