This Compromise Agreement, (also known as a Settlement Agreement) is to agree terms between an employer and an employee or recent ex-employee to prevent a claim proceeding to an employment tribunal hearing. The agreement complies with the legal requirements for an employee to have independent legal advice regarding the details of their compromise agreement.

The Compromise Agreement is clearly marked "without prejudice" to prevent an employee subsequently using evidence of an offer at an employment tribunal or court, should an agreement not be reached between the employer and them.

This agreement has been updated to comply with the Equality Act 2010.

The agreement includes restrictive covenants that impose post-termination duties on employee, including confidentiality and non-competition.

The agreement also includes a resignation letter to be used by the employee.

The clauses in this agreement include:

  • Outline
  • Termination

A detailed Compromise Agreement will cover all the points of a proposed settlement between an employer and an employee (or ex-employee). For the employee it is an opportunity to seek outside legal advice. For the employer it is a very cost-effective way to negotiate a settlement and avoid the time, expense and possible negative publicity of an employment tribunal hearing.
