Reaffirmation Letter

What is a Reaffirmation Letter?


Where there is a significant period between agreeing the terms of a Settlement Agreement and the actual leaving date, it is common practice to require an employee to sign twice, once at the date of agreement and then, once more on or shortly after the Termination Date. This second signing is called reaffirmation.

In the reaffirmation letter (or reaffirmation certificate), the employee will repeat certain provisions of the Settlement Agreement – usually in respect of the waiver to bring employment related claims and warranties regarding confidentiality and conduct.

Usually, the employee will need to receive further independent legal advice on this and so a second Adviser’s certificate is required.
