Successor Agreements

4. The Government shall recognize the transferee as entitled to the beneficiary of the heir in the interest and in the contract. By this agreement, the buyer is entitled to all the rights, titles and interests of the beneficiary of the hère and to the contract, as if the buyer were the original party. After the date of entry into force of this Agreement, the terms carrier and contractor used in the contract shall apply to the assignee. The year 2020 has taught us that the future is not always predictable. Unionized employers face the unique challenge of coping with these unpredictable times in collective agreements that likely did not take into account the impact of a global pandemic on their businesses and staff. The expiration of a collective agreement allows employers and unions to address COVID-19 issues in a succession agreement. Parties negotiating a succession collective agreement should develop and negotiate proposals to maintain and strengthen their operations in the face of the pandemic and to ensure the health and safety of workers. Parties are also encouraged to consider the “what if” the pandemic could mean for their businesses and staff in the coming years and to seek additional flexibility at the bargaining table. (6) It is in the interest of the Government to recognize the successor to the contract. The Statute provides that a natural or commercial entity that has received a contract for consulting services from the UC may not offer or receive a succession order to provide goods or services necessary, offered or otherwise deemed appropriate in the final proceeds of the initial contract for consulting services.

The Company`s failure to induce such successor to execute and provide a succession agreement to the Employee constitutes a material breach by the Company of the provisions of this Agreement. A typical (brief) succession and assignment clause says: “This agreement must benefit and bind the successors and beneficiaries of the parties.” Normally, I think it`s too tight, even for “light” chords. More thought needs to be given to that. (c) The administrator of the contract terminates the contract if it is established that it is not in the interest of the Government to recognize a legal person in the interest of the contract. The date of entry into force shall be fixed by the decision of the contract taking into account the best interests of the participants in the FEHBP. My point is that there are so many possible variations of what the parties might really want if they think carefully about the lack of boilerplate successors and attribution clauses. And on the other hand, sometimes the economics of the situation does not justify scattering in these details that will probably not matter, with an emphasis on probably. But if something unexpected happens and the lawyer only left with “Boilerplate”, maybe his client doesn`t have the result. And if the lawyer peppers the client with “What if” and degenerates the fees for writing the contract, or complicates or delays negotiations with the other party, his client may not like it either. That is why the practice of law is precisely that, a practice, not a science. What will happen if the person you contract with dies before the contract is performed? Or what if the company you have a contract with sells all of its assets, including the contract, to another company before the contract is performed? Or what if you contract with a company because you trust its current owners, but along the way, those owners change.
