Mutual Rescission and Release Agreement Style 17

If there are uncertain or incomplete clauses in the contract, and all options in resolving its true meaning have failed, it may be possible to sever and void just those affected clauses if the contract includes a severability clause. The test of whether a clause is severable is an objective test—whether a reasonable person would see the contract standing even without the clauses.

Weyerhaeuser Co., 423 F.3d 1139, amended by, 446 F.3d 1090 (10th Cir. 2006)(the court invalidated a release of claims because it failed to identify selection criteria as “eligibility factors;” however, in a later, revised, opinion, the court omitted eligibility factors as one of the grounds for invalidating the release and held only that the employer violated OWBPA by failing to identify the decisional unit). The court held that fraud was a sufficient reason for finding the waiver invalid. For a term to be implied by custom it needs to be "so well known and acquiesced in that everyone making a contract in that situation can reasonably be presumed to have imported that term into the contract".:paras 8–9.

Mutual Rescission and Release Agreement Style 17

The form below is a very basic one, using boilerplate language, and is intended for educational purposes only. It has not been vetted by an expert, or updated. When both parties want to invalidate an agreement that neither has fulfilled completely, and to release all of their related obligations and rights under that agreement, they may use a rescission to meet these objectives. If one or both parties have completed key tasks required of them under the agreement, a different remedy is generally required (often a claim for restitution). Rescission "turns back the clock" and puts each party back in the position they held before the agreement became effective. It is, as some courts have said, the un-making of a contract. When both parties want to invalidate an agreement that neither has fulfilled completely, and to release all of their related obligations and rights under that agreement, they may use a rescission to meet these objectives. If one or both parties have completed key tasks required of them under the agreement, a different remedy is generally required (often a claim for restitution).
