A Mutual Separation Agreement is the contract which sets out the terms upon which the working relationship has come to an end. In some instances the employer and employee agree that the working relationship should come to an end.
In a Mutual Separation Agreement, the rights and obligations of the employer and employee are set out by means of a binding contract.
By entering into an MSA, the parties avoid the unnecessary stress, costs, and time associated with a CCMA dispute.
Our specialist labour lawyers assist employers with the preparation of mutual separation agreements which are fair, binding, and legally sound. We also assist employees who have been furnished with an MSA in an advisory capacity to ensure that their interests are looked after in the final signed MSA.
