Spanish term or phrase: documento de finiquito
Cumplidas estas formalidades y efectuadas como sean los pagos de todas las facturas o porciones de facturas procedentes, las partes deberan suscribir un documento de finiquito.

Is there a common translation for this document?

Thanks!

English translation:settlement agreement OR discharge agreement
Explanation:
These are the common translations of "finiquito", and I believe either would be appropriate in this case. Since it is an official document that is being signed, I would prefer "agreement" to "document".

Thank you for your help - I think settlement is more appropriate here because it refers to the end of a contractor-customer relationship rather than employer-employee.

Thanks for all the replies!

Explanation:
Hi!
I usually use any of the suggestions. I have also seen Final Paycheck. But I guess, the context is different.

release document


Explanation:
document issued by the employer and signed by the employee on leaving the company. As a standard practice full payment of all salaries, compensations and others is stated by the employer and signed as received by the employee. I hope this helps. Good luck!

If we talk about money than the word "settlement" is also apropriate.

settlement


Explanation:
This is the version given in one legal dictionary. Perhaps "deed" might be appropriate for "documento". Is there a "deed of settlement"? More questions than answers, perhaps.

discharge and quitclaim


Explanation:
are both quite standard. The word comes from "fin y quito", the agreement signed between employer and employee in liquidation of the previous working relationship. Its components include: last salary, proportional part of bonuses, separation pay (likely based on seniority), indemnity for any clauses of the CBA and any other pending monetary liquidations, against the statement of the employee that "that's all there is" or something to that effect.
