The termination of an employment contract by contract of mutual dismissal is not a condition that triggers the right to unemployment insurance under Law 4447 on unemployment insurance. Finally, I would like to say that workers must be explicitly informed before reciprocal redundancy agreements have been concluded and that the mutual and common intentions of workers must be demonstrated in order to reduce the risk of further challenge to the invalid effects of the agreement. Reciprocal termination agreements must be concluded in writing and the principle of a “reasonable benefit” must be taken into account with respect to the rights to be granted to the worker. In particular, the granting of certain material benefits, in addition to ordinary legal compensation, is of crucial importance for the presentation of the principle of “reasonable benefit”. Employment contracts may be terminated by mutual agreement between the parties. The legal basis for mutual termination agreements is rooted in “contractual freedom” as a constitutional right. The employer and the worker terminate an existing employment contract through a “reciprocal termination contract.” The validity of the mutual termination contract does not depend on some form. Therefore, a reciprocal termination agreement can be executed either explicitly or implicitly, orally or in writing. In the absence of a form required to be valid, the form of the agreement is of great importance to the evidence. It would therefore be advantageous to implement in writing a reciprocal termination agreement in order to demonstrate the common will of the parties to terminate the employment contract. Legal compensation related to the termination of an employment contract (i.e.
severance pay and severance pay) does not in principle apply to valid termination contracts. Nevertheless, the parties can agree on another plan for the payment of such compensation. In addition, when considering the “reasonable benefit” criteria, the Supreme Court ensures that additional compensation and payments are made as a factor affecting the validity of a reciprocal termination agreement. Other means of terminating employment contracts include the exchange of redundancies between the employer and the worker on statutory deadlines and immediate dismissal for just reasons, with the death of a worker and at the end of the agreed term of fixed-term employment contracts.
