An employer and employee may often wish to agree to reach a binding agreement as to the terms upon which a contract of employment is terminated. Save in two circumstances such agreements are not enforceable. The exceptional circumstances are:-
||Where a compromise agreement is achieved by an ACAS Officer within tribunal proceedings, or
||Where there is a compromise agreement which satisfies various criteria – known as “a Section 203 Agreement”.
To be valid a Section 203 Agreement must:-
||Be in writing.
||Relate to the particular dispute/issue between the parties.
||The employee must have received independent legal advice from a solicitor or a specially trained Trade Union Official.
||The lawyer or adviser must have a professional indemnity insurance in place. It is not usually possible for those agreements to contract out of liability for possible claims for personal injury that an Employee may have unless those are already under contemplation.
