And to be very frank, open and honest - whether it was a "settlement" or a "severance" is not defined by his client. It is defined by the National Restaurant Association. If there was actually a court case with a file number and the case was settled instead of going to court, then it would be considered a settlement.
Another edit. Why don't you think these things all the way through before you hit submit.
You are absolutely incorrect. You might want to read the attorney's words. It does not have to be filed in court to be a settlement. Insurance companies pay settlements all the time to keep from having court cases filed.
