Severability Entire Agreement

Nichole Kec sued his employer, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., of which Kec had signed a contractual waiver of the group action and any “other representative action,” including a paga claim. The arbitration agreement further stated that it was “neither amendable nor deductible” and that if the waiver of the agent was found invalid, “the agreement would be annulled for the workers involved in this particular dispute,” which the court described as a “pipe provision.” The court granted the employer`s request to order the conciliation of Kec`s individual claims, with the exception of the paga application. Kec asked the Court of Appeal to issue a warrant decision that overturned the court`s order that requires the reconciliation of their individual rights.

However, in the context of such an assignment, a confidentiality provision as described above could be interpreted so that the implied party is required to obtain the agreement/waiver of the other party with respect to this duty of confidentiality. If these formulations of the transfer and confidentiality provisions were added by reflex to several other agreements of the acquired party, the requirement to obtain parties from such consents/renouncements could significantly delay or even prevent the impending acquisition. In this scenario, including a provision with the following effect, the problem should be resolved: “A party that receives confidential information from the other party may disclose such confidential information to an authorized assignee of that receiving party in accordance with the section [assignment provision] provided that the authorized assignee is first informed by that recipient of the confidentiality of such confidential information and has agreed in writing to respect its confidentiality in accordance with the confidentiality of this section.” Legislation could provide for a dissociability clause: If a “section, subsection, sentence, sentence, sentence, phrase, expression, destination or application” of the law is found to be invalid, unlawful, unconstitutional or unenforceable, this finding does not affect or impair the validity of another “section, subsection, sentence, sentence, phrase, word, intention or request” that may be imposed without the application of the
