What is a Compromise Agreement?
A compromise agreement is a legal contract that aims to settle employment dismissal disputes. Such a dispute can arise when the dismissal of an employee is not clear-cut or the employee does not accept it. In return for a payment from you, the employer, or other benefits, a compromise agreement ensures that an employee cannot make any further claims against you. This also ensures that you are not taken to an Employment Tribunal. As an employer, such an agreement is recommended to guarantee that the employee does not claim for breach of contract, unfair dismissal or discrimination either during their term of employment or dismissal.
Carter Moore’s compromise agreement solicitors will negotiate the agreement to make certain that the terms provide the best outcome for both you and the employee. We will ensure that your interests are protected and that the employee waives their rights to any additional claims.
What our compromise agreement solicitors can do for you
A compromise agreement must be in writing in order for it to be legally binding. It is essential that you instruct a specialist employment law solicitor to draft your compromise agreement. This will ensure that the agreement is correctly drafted, legally binding and incorporates all the essential statutory conditions.
The employee must be represented by a qualified employment solicitor and the terms of the compromise agreement must convey an express complaint made by that employee.
