With over 19 years' experience in advising employees from all sectors, senior executives to factory workers, I have extensive experience in employment law advice and, specialise in compromise agreements.
Settlement of Employment Tribunal type claims can only be made via a Compromise Agreement (or an ACAS COT3). This is to make sure that employees fully understand the implications of signing.
There can be many advantages to a Compromise Agreement including:
- tax efficiency (payments up to £30,000 are normally tax free)
- avoiding legal costs (these are not normally recoverable in an
- litigation risk and speed (you may not win at tribunal and if you
do you may have to wait many months for your money)
However, the main advantage is peace of mind. People often underestimate the impact being in a dispute with an employer. It can be very stressful to be involved in proceedings where former colleagues are witnesses. A compromise agreement will usually include terms to protect the parties’ reputations and the contents of references etc.; this can give you a great deal more confidence when you go for job interviews.
However, strongly you feel about what may have happened at work, many employees, particularly once they have another job, you may well want to forget about the past and move on. If there have been employment law-related issues, you need to assess the potential value of related claims and weigh this in the balance with the advantages of ‘closure’.
