In the meantime, the government has published its response to the report of the Committee on Women and Equal Opportunities (WEC) on the use of confidentiality agreements (NDAs) in cases of unlawful discrimination and harassment, in order to highlight the continuing interest in this regard. This response essentially sets out the legislative proposals announced in July. A composition agreement is a lawful written contract, under which a worker generally undertakes not to assert labour law rights, such as unfair dismissal, unlawful dismissal or discrimination against the employer. This is often done against a lump sum payment, most often referred to as a termination payment. A settlement agreement can also be used in the event of a breakdown in the relationship with the employer or between workers.
