Legal advice on Compromise Agreements in Exeter, Newton Abbot and Torquay
A Compromise Agreement is an agreement between an employer and employee to compromise an employee's contractual and statutory claims on termination of employment. The agreement will record the terms and the payments to be made in return for a waiver of claims.
As a Compromise Agreement will normally require you to give up employment rights, including any potential future claims, it is necessary that you seek independent legal advice before entering a Compromise Agreement. WBW regularly advise on the implications of entering a Compromise Agreement and can normally accept instructions and offer advice on the same day.
