Despite the name change settlement or compromise agreement is still legally binding document which contains the full terms of the deal agreed with your employer. This means once it is signed you cannot bring any claim against your employer. Because of this you need to take independent legal advice on the agreement before signing and your adviser will also need to sign”.

The legal professionals at Michael Lewin Solicitors were recently contacted by Mr P who had been offered a compromise agreement from his former employer after being made redundant. He told us of how he was made redundant on the day that he return to work after a sickness absence but felt the redundancy was a pretext for the real dismissal reason as he did not believe his position was no longer needed by the company.
A compromise agreement could provide an arranged sum to Mr P in exchange for him agreeing not to bring a claim against his employer. This is often preferred by employers as it saves the time and cost involved in going to court or tribunal but could also be beneficial to the employee (or former employee) as it assures them of receiving it decided amount of recompense within a definite timescale.
