Most contested personnel actions settle. A comprehensive settlement addresses events past, present, and future to avoid litigation over the agreement’s meaning. The settlement should be complete, concise and clear. Peter Broida’s third, expanded text on settlement guides practitioners who negotiate and write agreements resolving federal personnel disputes. He offers practical guidance on the settlement process. He provides hundreds of examples of settlement provisions addressing dozens of issues in MSPB, EEOC, and arbitration cases. The examples show what can be included in a settlement—a check against significant omissions. The examples address common issues: resignation, retirement; rescission of actions; clean paper; treatment of OPF, litigation, and other files; last chance and abeyance agreements; disability accommodation; details, reassignments, IPA assignments; training; continuing or future duties; adjustment of personnel records and performance-related documents; promotion, priority consideration; demotion, other substituted discipline; restriction on future agency employment; leave and telework; access to agency facilities, buildings; backpay, damages, lump sum payments, counsel fees; tax liability and documentation; withdrawal of present actions, preclusion of future actions; global and specific releases; waivers of claims past, present, and future; indemnification; OWPBA protections; employment references, nondisparagement; confidentiality and exceptions; cooperation, good faith of the parties; enforcement; agreement formalities: introductory provisions, clauses concerning interpretation or construction of agreement, nonprecedential effect, joint-drafters, partial invalidity, prohibition against claims assignment; effective date and agreement execution. Every settlement is written to meet unique circumstances. Broida’s text helps litigators to recognize significant provisions and craft agreements that are readily understood and implemented.
