We are delighted to announce the launch of CompromiseUK, a specialist resource for employees seeking independent professional advice on all aspects of compromise agreements – www.compromiseuk.co.uk
The site is operated by Slee Blackwell’s employment department who specialise in advising employees on compromise agreements.
For those unfamiliar with the concept, a compromise agreement is a legally binding written agreement between an employer and an employee that is entered into on the termination of the employee’s employment.
The compromise agreement sets out the terms upon which the employee and the employer are to part company. Invariably it involves the employee receiving severance pay or compensation. In return for this, the employee agrees not to bring a claim against the employer in the employment tribunal or court.
Head of employment law at Slee Blackwell Roger Cheves commented:-
“We are pleased to be launching this new dedicated website. We have found that people are increasingly seeking our advice on compromise agreements and the new website contains all the information that an employee will need.”
In most cases, the service will cost the client nothing. This is because most employers will foot the bill for a compromise agreement themselves.
Anyone requiring free initial advice on compromise agreements is welcome to contact Roger on 01392 423000 or at [email protected]
