(j) The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), 29 U.S.C. § 621, et seq.; (k) any agreement, representation, promise, understanding, policy, practice, or potential entitlement (regardless of the source); (l) past or future wages, severance, compensation, vacation pay, benefits, bonuses, commissions, fringe benefits, or other forms of consideration, payment, or remuneration, except for claims to enforce payment of those sums explicitly identified in Section 3 or for payment of those sums earned and unpaid as of the Separation Date; (m) The Indiana Civil Rights Law, Ind. Code 22-9-1, et seq.; and (n) any wage and hour and wage payments laws and regulations of the state or states in which I have provided service to Allison including, without limitation, The Indiana Wage Payment and Wage Claims Acts, Ind. Code 22-2-5-2, 22-2-2-4, 22-2-5-9, 22-2-9-1, et seq. I further agree to release and discharge Allison and waive all claims related to any other federal, state, or local law, whether arising or emanating from statute, executive order, regulation, code, common law, or other source, including, but not limited to, all actions sounding in tort, contract, and/or any doctrine of good faith and fair dealing. I also confirm that there are currently no claims against Allison for unpaid benefits, wages, or other payments (other than possible retirement or pension benefits, the eligibility and payment of which are governed by the applicable plans, and the deferred compensation benefits for which I may be eligible). Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Agreement is not intended to operate as a waiver of any benefit entitlements, including retirement or pension benefits, that are vested as of the Separation Date, the eligibility and entitlement to which shall be governed by the terms of the applicable employee benefit plan of Allison. This Agreement also does not operate as a waiver of, or otherwise affect, any vested benefits I may have pursuant to Allisons deferred compensation plan. Moreover, nothing in this section or Agreement shall be interpreted to waive or extinguish any rights which, by express and unequivocal terms of law, may not under any circumstances be waived or extinguished, including, but not limited to, my right to file a charge with or participate in a charge by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or any other local, state, or federal administrative body or government agency that is authorized to enforce or administer laws related to employment, against Allison (with the understanding that my release of claims herein bars me from recovering such monetary relief from Allison), or prevent me from seeking unemployment benefits pursuant to applicable law.
13. Covenant Not to Sue. I agree that I will never sue or file a lawsuit or administrative claim against Allison including, without limitation, any lawsuit concerning or in any way related to my employment with Allison, the termination of that employment, the compensation or benefits payable in connection with my employment, or any other interaction or relationship with Allison, and that no such suit is currently pending. Should I violate any aspect of this section, I agree that any suit shall be null and void, and must be summarily dismissed or withdrawn. I also agree that if a claim or charge of any kind should be raised, brought, or filed in my name or on my behalf, I waive any right to, and agree not to take, any resulting award. This section and this Agreement shall not operate to waive or bar any claim which, by express and unequivocal terms of law, may not under any circumstances be waived or barred. This Paragraph also shall not preclude me from enforcing the terms of this Agreement or enforcing any rights I may have pursuant to any benefit entitlements, including any pension, deferred compensation or retirement benefits, that are vested as of the Separation Date.
