letter template Release of liability for an employee An employee release is a letter written when an employee is released from an obligation or certain problems related to his or her job. Originally intended for military use, discharge letters are becoming increasingly common in the business world. They differ from termination letters, which are generally used in cases of misconduct. A letter of release can be used by the employer to avoid concern if something goes wrong. The employer, before issuing a letter of release, must ensure that all details have been clarified between the two parties, such as the employee's position, the problems that may arise and the employee will not be held responsible. Sometimes and depending on the circumstances, the employer may put a phrase that waives the employee's right to legal action in the event of an accident. In order to understand the meaning of a release letter for an employee, let's take a simple example. When installing an alarm system at a customer's premises, the employer can sign a letter of release with the employee so that the latter is not held responsible for the malfunctioning of the device caused by an old electrical installation or by improper use of the device. In this case, the employee is protected from any legal action that may arise.
