A compromise agreement is a legal document that once reached brings to an end the employment law relationship between employer and employee. Our Employment Law Inverness solicitors have significant experience in advising employers and employees on all aspects of the use of compromise agreements.
Compromise Agreements for Employees
If you are an employee who has been given a compromise agreement by your employer we can assist. Your employer will meet the costs of our lawyers advising you on the terms of the document you have received. The reason that your employer pays for this advice is that it is necessary for you as an employee to have received independent legal advice before the agreement becomes legally binding. The advice given to you as an employee is genuinely independent and is not in any way impacted upon by the fact that fees are met by the employer.
Our advice to employees covers all aspects of the agreement and we will discuss each of the clauses contained in the document. It is crucial that you understand that if accepting the agreement that you would be giving up rights you would have to take your employer to an employment tribunal for unfair dismissal or other claims that you may have arising from your employment. In return the employee receives a financial settlement which is often an enhanced “package” to terminate the employment relationship and we can advise you on whether the terms of the agreement are fair.
