Agreement Extends to Known and Unknown, Suspected and Unsuspected Claims. This Agreement covers both claims that Employee knows about or suspects as well as those Employee does not know about or does not suspect, and Employee expressly waives all rights afforded by any statute which limits the effect of a release with respect to unknown and unsuspected claims.

Please read this Agreement carefully. It contains a release of all known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected claims.

Unknown Claims. The Parties expressly acknowledge and agree that the release provided for in [Section 4.1] extends to and fully and finally releases and forever resolves the Litigation and all matters covered by the releases that are known or unknown, anticipated or unanticipated, suspected or unsuspected, that have arisen or that may hereafter arise as a result of the discovery of new and/or additional facts. The Parties, having made independent investigation to their satisfaction, acknowledge and understand the significance and potential consequences of their release of unknown claims. The Parties intend that the claims released under this Agreement be construed as broadly as possible and agree to waive and relinquish all rights and benefits each may have under Section 1542 of the Civil Code of the State of California, or any similar statute or law of any other jurisdiction. [Section 1542] reads as follows: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR THE RELEASED PARTY.”

Waiver Of Unknown Claims. It is the parties’ intention that the foregoing release shall be construed in the broadest sense possible, and shall be effective as a prohibition to all claims, charges, actions, suits, demands, obligations, damages, injuries, liabilities, losses, and causes of action of every character, nature, kind or description, known or unknown, and suspected or unsuspected that you may have against the Releasees.

Release of Unknown Claims. For the purpose of implementing a full and complete release, Employee expressly acknowledges and agrees that this Agreement resolves all legal claims he may have against Released Parties as of the date of this Agreement, including but not limited to claims that he did not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of the effective date of this Agreement.

Complete Release of All Known and Unknown Claims. In consideration of the payments due Employee under this Agreement, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:


Notwithstanding any local or other law to the contrary, you expressly agree that the General Release of Claims will extend and apply to all claims, injuries and damages you may have against the Company and/or any of the Released Parties at the time you sign the Agreement, regardless of whether you are aware of or suspect such claims at the time you sign.

against any and all loss, liability, claim, damage and expense whatsoever, as incurred, joint or several, to the extent of the aggregate amount paid in settlement of any litigation, or any investigation or proceeding by any governmental agency or body, commenced or threatened, or of any claim whatsoever based upon any such untrue statement or omission, or any such alleged untrue statement or omission; provided that (subject to Section 10(d) below) any such settlement is effected with the written consent of the Agent, which consent shall not unreasonably be delayed or withheld; and

any and all other claims for damages of any kind.
