Before you sign any form of compromise agreement with your employer, you should seek independent advice from an experienced employment solicitor. Here at Dickinson Parker Hill, our legal team will talk you through the agreement and will be able to negotiate on your behalf to ensure that you are treated fairly in all of the agreed terms.

What is a Compromise Agreement?

  • It is a written agreement that is usually entered into when an employment relationship is coming to an end.
  • It is a legally binding agreement and is designed to set out the terms on which the relationship will end, considering factors such as the provision of a reference or a confidentiality clause.
  • It usually contains a clause excluding an employee’s right to 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

Our employment solicitors regularly advise employees in Ormskirk, Southport and across Merseyside and Lancashire on their compromise agreements. It is worth noting that our costs are usually paid by the employer once the compromise agreement has been concluded, so at no point should cost stop you proceeding with our employment contract lawyers. If you want to discuss our range of employment law services in more detail, please contact our team here at Dickinson Parker Hill today. Our employment solicitors are available by phone or email, or in person if you’re close to Ormskirk.
