What is a Compromise Agreement?
Our employment law solicitors understand that employers often want to dismiss employees without following procedures or without having a fair reason for dismissal.
The solution is often a Compromise Agreement (also known as a Severance Agreement) under which the employer pays the employee a sum of money and the employee effectively signs away rights to any claims they may have against the employer. It is essential that any employee understands the effect of a Compromise Agreement and in order for a Compromise Agreement to be valid it is necessary for the employee to get advice from an independent employment law solicitor.
Our Compromise Agreement Solicitors are experienced negotiators and will ensure you get a fair settlement. Our solicitors will also advise you on your options if you are unhappy with the Compromise Agreement, which might include making an Employment Tribunal claim against your employer.
We strongly advise employees to take specialist legal advice with regard to a Compromise Agreement. Our employment law solicitors also help employers with the drafting of such Compromise Agreements to ensure that they are valid and comply with the appropriate legislation.
How much will a Compromise Agreement cost?
When acting for employees, in most cases:
- There is usually no cost to you for our legal advice on your Compromise Agreement. Your employer will usually pay your legal costs. Our solicitors can confirm whether or not you will have to pay any costs as soon as they see the draft Compromise Agreement and after an initial FREE consultation with you on the phone or in person
- Our solicitors can advise you very quickly
- We can advise you by phone or email if you prefer
