Employer Settlement Agreements (Compromise Agreements)

Whether it is because of limitations on resources, timing issues or for commercial reasons, it is not always possible or preferable for a company to go through lengthy detailed dismissal procedures. We regularly advise company clients on the use of settlement agreements (compromise agreement) as a management tool.

Recent instructions include:

  • Advising a company client on the use of settlement agreements in a voluntary redundancy scheme offering enhanced voluntary terms
  • Using a settlement agreement to record the terms of negotiated non-solicitation and non-dealing provisions, following a successful investigation of competitive activity
  • Advising a company client on the offer and subsequent implementation of a settlement agreement as an alternative to the use of complex performance management procedures
