Compromise agreements are contracts between employers and employees which state that an ex-employee will not be able to make any further claims against their employer on the grounds of breaches of statutory obligation. They often include a financial payment to a former employee. Compromise agreements are a widely used tool in resolving workplace disputes. If you have left a job role and your former employer wants you to sign a compromise agreement then it is vital that you seek legal advice from experienced employment solicitors. Contact Bray and Bray on 0116 254 8871 today for advice on how to proceed.
Compromise agreements – employee benefits
There are many benefits to compromise agreements for both an employer and employee. From an employer’s perspective, compromise agreements can prevent an employee taking further complaints to a tribunal. From an employee’s perspective they offer financial compensation for alleged grievances, and there is the option to have a clause attached which prevents a former employer from “bad mouthing” an employee – essential for their reputation and future job chances.
