Last-chance isn’t ‘license to discriminate’

03/06/2009

If you use last-chance agreements that include an employee’s promise not to sue, understand that courts will strictly limit such a promise. The agreement can include a promise not to sue for past alleged employer discrimination in exchange for the last chance to remain employed. However, that promise cannot be extended to any discrimination that may occur later.
