One of the main areas we advise is in relation to Compromise Agreements.

Our experienced solicitors will advise you if the compromise agreement that has been offered to you is fair whilst at the same time protecting your future employment and career.

Before you sign a compromise agreement with your employer, you should seek independent advice from an experienced solicitor. At Dickinson Parker Hill we will talk you through the agreement and will negotiate on your behalf to ensure that you are treated fairly.

What is a Compromise Agreement?

  • It is a written agreement usually entered into when an employment relationship is coming to an end.
  • It is a legally binding agreement and sets out the terms on which the relationship will end, such as provision for a reference or a confidentiality clause.
  • It will usually contain a clause excluding the employee’s right to bring a claim against the employer in a Court or Employment Tribunal.

When is a Compromise Agreement needed?

  • When an employee is to be made redundant
  • When an employee is to be dismissed
  • When employment is ended by mutual agreement
  • To settle an Employment Tribunal claim

Costs

Our employment solicitors regularly advise employees on compromise agreements. Our costs are usually paid by the employer once the compromise agreement has been concluded.
