Compromise agreements

A compromise agreement is a contract recording certain terms agreed by an employer and an employee on the termination of the employment relationship, whether by reason of redundancy, to settle a tribunal claim or to negotiate an amicable departure.

The compromise agreement will state that the employee will receive a financial settlement and in exchange he or she will waive all rights to make claims against the employer. For this reason, all outstanding claims against an employer need to be dealt with in the compromise agreement.

In order for a compromise agreement to be valid, an employee needs to obtain independent legal advice.

If you have received a compromise agreement from your employer, a member of our team is on hand to advise you on its terms and on the offer of compensation. We will ensure that any agreement reached is fair and reasonable in the circumstances and we will seek to negotiate more favourable terms on your behalf if necessary.
