    It is advisable when looking to settle an employment dispute to exclude, as far as possible, any claims by the employee against the employer in return for an agreed exit and settlement payment. To achieve this effectively such a settlement should be in the form of a settlement agreement (formerly compromise agreements) and great care should be taken in drafting such an agreement. For a settlement agreement to be binding it must comply with certain conditions:

    • It must be in writing, identify the adviser, relate to the particular complaint and state that relevant statutory conditions are satisfied
    • The employee or worker must have received advice from a relevant independent adviser as to the terms and effect of the proposed agreement and, in particular, its effect on his/her ability to pursue their rights before an employment tribunal
    • There must be in force, when the adviser gives the advice, a contract of insurance, or an indemnity provided for members of a profession or professional body, covering the risk of a claim by the employee or worker in respect of loss arising in consequence of the advice
