Employer witholding arrears because of resignation, is this legal?

I received an appraisal at work which was confirmed on email in June but I was supposed to receive it with arrears from April. At the end of August, I received half my arrears and around that time was told I need to sign an appraisal letter which came with new terms and conditions which weren't discussed previously. I resigned in September and now my employer won't clear my arrears without me signing a relieving letter which rephrases some of those terms from the appraisal letter that I didn't sign. Can my employer legally do this?

No. But it is also an obvious thing that he will not release your arrears easily. You'll have to adopt legal measures regarding that.
