A transaction agreement is essentially an opportunity for you and your employer to decide on „sub-companies“ on certain agreed terms. Under the terms and conditions, you waive your right to claim (or drop) against your employer. Transaction agreements can also be used to terminate your employment and can settle an outstanding claim that you file in an employment tribunal or tribunal.
