Peta Fluendy recently posted an article to the Financial Mail Women’s Forum discussing compromise agreements and how once again they had recently hit the headlines.She discusses how compromise agreements successfully avoid thousands of tribunal disputes over a year but that they are “being completely changed by the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill and settlement agreements.

“ACAS has just issued a draft code of practice about how to draw up settlement agreements and how to ensure that the negotiations about an agreement cannot be used as evidence in a tribunal hearing if things turn sour. A new clause will be inserted into the Employment Right Act 1996 to prevent this.”

The article mentions how one of the more complicated things about settlement agreements is the fact that employers will lose this protection from the negotiations being used as evidence against them if they are thought to have behaved improperly in any way forcing the employee into signing. This means employers will not be able to put it is classed as undue pressure on an employee by giving them short periods of time to consider the offer and to make a decision.
