A settlement agreement (formerly called a compromise and is in fact the same) is the only way for an employer to legitimize a worker to waive his or her rights to exercise a right to work. A compromise agreement is a legally binding agreement between a company and an employee in which the employee agrees to settle his potential rights and, in return, the employer agrees to pay financial compensation. Sometimes the agreement contains other things that are beneficial to the employee, for example. B an agreed letter of reference. For a compromise agreement to be legally binding, a number of conditions must be met: all our lawyers are experienced labour law specialists with a long and successful experience in the implementation of settlement agreements. Be very careful when discussing transaction agreements or departures with staff, as you risk constructive dismissal. In January 2013, the UK government proposed a series of changes. This includes renaming compromise agreements to “settlement agreements”.
