Dismissals and Compromise Agreements

Dismissals and Compromise Agreements

 

Whether or not you have a fair reason for dismissal, a badly managed dismissal can be a costly and time consuming. Our experienced lawyers will advise you on the correct procedures, help you assess the risk and advise on the appropriate use of compromise agreements to pre-empt potential claims against your business.

Compromise agreements must be carefully negotiated to ensure the best outcome for both parties, respecting the employer’s need to protect his/her interests, and the employee’s requirement for sufficient compensation terms to waive their rights to any further claim. If a compromise agreement does not meet the strict guidelines set out in law, it may be unenforceable.
