What kind of document would this be called?
A little background: Party#1 is the programmer contracted to help build my website. He has signed an NDA/work for hire. Over the last couple months he thinks that he is owed something like 250 hours of coding, when he barely did anything and most of the coding he did was at a very amateur level and took forever. We have already payed him the average amount someone would get payed for a project of this size. He was promised a partnership if he had proven himself. He hasn't. Now he is mad and deleted the code from our servers and even our customers from the database. He is using extortion in asking for $$$ for the code and also threatening to sell the license for the code. He thinks he owns the code even though he signed an NDA/work for hire that specifically states that the code is owned by my company.
Party#2 is my company. We believe we have ground on his malicious acts(extortion and theft) against us. We don't want to take legal action towards this. We just want a document that both parties sign saying that we are done with each other and are ready to move on without taking any legal action.
The two outcomes if he didn't agree to this would be: 1.Him fighting us to receive money. 2. Us fighting him against deleting code and our database.
The best result for both of us would be to just move on. So I am looking for the name of a document that would finalize this situation.
any answers are appreciated.
