Experienced Compromise Agreements Law Firm
We advice and assist both employers and employee in respect of compromise agreements.
At Waldegraves, our solicitors advice employees on whether they should enter into compromise agreements with their employers. Such agreements will often prevent employees from pursuing a claim and effectively require them to sign away important statutory and contractual rights. In return the employer will offer them a sum of money. Accordingly it is important that employees are advised as to whether they are getting the best deal possible. Would it be worth their while not to sign the agreement and make a claim? Are they signing too many rights away? Can a better deal be negotiated?
Employers who wish to terminate an employee's contract of employment will often prefer to enter into a compromise agreement with the employee rather than dismiss them. This can often save the time and expense of employment litigation. A further benefit is that compromise agreements are usually confidential whereas litigation takes place in the public domain. Whether an employer should offer such an agreement and what the agreement should contain is an important and sensitive commercial decision. We advice and assist in respect of such matters.
