What is this Compromise Agreement for?

As an employer, you can use this  Compromise Agreement after negotiating  a settlement with an employee whose contract is being terminated and  you want  to ensure that the  employee  cannot then bring a claim at court against the employer.

An employer will normally use this form of compromise agreement to settle disputes with a ‘bad leaver’. In that case, be sure to mention  any specific claim that is being settled. This type of agreement is quite complicated.  Among other things the employee will need to get independent legal advice before signing it.

For a simpler form of settlement agreement where the employee leaves on friendly terms, with or without agoodwill payment, see our document E132, Employment Termination Agreement
