THE EMPLOYEE ALSO ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THE EMPLOYEE HAD A REASONABLE PERIOD OF TIME TO CONSIDER ALL CONDITIONS AND PROVISIONS AND THAT THE EMPLOYEE WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO ASK QUESTIONS AND CONSULT WITH COUNSEL AT THE EMPLOYEE`S OPTION PRIOR TO SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT. THE COLLABORATOR ALSO ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE EMPLOYEE FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY SIGNS THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT THE EMPLOYEE`S SIGNATURE BELOW IS AN AGREEMENT TO RESOLVE ALL CLAIMS THAT THE EMPLOYEE HAS OR MAY HAVE AGAINST THE COMPANY AND DECLASSIFICATIONS, UNLESS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THE AGREEMENT. An unblocking of claims also limits a former employee`s ability to speak about the company in a derogatory manner. With a duly written non-disparagement clause, the former employee, if he makes the company bad, loses the severance pay. Make the appropriate offer and the company is protected from public litigation and denigration. . . .
