An HR Director was sued individually for sexual harassment. Her employment terminated and a release was signed. Her employer then settled the sexual harassment suit, which was filed against the employer and the HR Director. An Appeals Court in Tennessee found that the release did not extinguish the HR Director’s claim for indemnification to recover her attorneys’ fees since the sexual harassment suit was settled after the release was signed. The Court found that the release did not extinguish future claims, and the claim for indemnification did not arise until the case was settled.
