UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Was the compromise agreement accepted and signed by both parties?
In this case the CA would not have been agreed as a legally binding document and it would have still been in the negotiation stage. Until both parties expressly agree to the terms of the agreement and signify this by signing it only then will it become a legally binding document. If the employee has simply received advice about this and has now changed her mind about the terms of the agreement, she is perfectly entitled to do this and it is back to the negotiations table I'm afraid. In the meantime she remains employed
You are most welcome and all the best
