Due to COVID we had to let go of an employee due to redundancy. The employee (worked for 10 years) signed a settlement agreement - Which was as termination and we gave him severance pay also. Now he is asking for a Relieving letter and we are giving him a termination letter. What are your views?

If the employee is covered under the definition of "workman" under the Industrial Disputes Act 1947 or U.P. Industrial Disputes Act 1947, then his termination may amount to "retrenchment" and if the settlement is not valid or not registered under the Act 1947, then he can assail it at a later stage. Therefore, you should examine all the things very carefully. If required, you can call me.
