Dismissals may not always be straightforward, or accepted by the employee.
A compromise agreement is a legally binding agreement that aims to resolve the disputed dismissal. It usually provides for a severance payment from the employer in return for a warranty by the employee not to pursue any claim they may feel entitled to at an employment tribunal.
Such agreements must be carefully negotiated to ensure the best outcome for both parties, respecting the employer’s need to protect his/her interests, and the employee’s requirement for sufficient compensation terms to waive their rights to any further claim. If a compromise agreement does not meet the strict guidelines set out in law, it may be unenforceable.
