Employment Law Dundee solicitors are expert in drafting compromise agreements. Compromise agreements are legally enforceable agreements between employers and employees when a contract of employment is to be terminated or to resolve a workplace dispute. Compromise agreements can be used in a variety of circumstances.
Redundancy, dismissal and employment tribunal situations are just some of the occasions where a compromise agreement may be used. Employment Law Dundee lawyers will advise you on the terms of your compromise agreement and its implications. It is important and necessary to get legal advice on a compromise agreement as it will end your right to bring any subsequent claim against your employer in a Court or Employment Tribunal. Before the agreement can become legally enforceable the employee must have received independent advice usually from an employment law solicitor and it is the norm for the employer to pay the reasonable legal expenses of the employee to obtain such advice.
