This essay investigates employee buyouts and does so from a number of different perspectives. Employee buyout is a term that describes a way of ending an employment through an agreement where the employee gets a sum of money in exchange of leaving their employment. Technically it is neither a resignation, since the employee gives up the employment in exchange of money, nor a dismissal since the employer does not have legal grounds for dismissing the employee. Employee buyout is not an illegal way to end an employment, as long as it is the result of a mutual agreement between the employer and the employee. In this essay I investigate and analyze employee buyouts in relation to 7 § in the Swedish employment protection act, and also Swedish employment protection in relation to regulations from EU regarding employment protection. Furthermore, I investigate buyouts of employees in the organization of Växjö Municipality, from a gender equality perspective. In this study of Växjö municipality differences shows regarding male and female employees and number of buyouts. In my analysis I try to explain these differences using gender theory and sociolinguistic theory.
