Pat severance payment

Hi Pat what is the difference between severance payment and compromise agreement.Do you know thanks

Hi Anon, I’m not sure which Pat you wanted… well you’ve got me!

Take a look at this link:

It seems to me that a severance payment is just a straightforward payment when your employment is ended.

A ‘compromise agreement’ is a payment given on condition that you will not pursue a claim against your employer for unfair dismissal.

If you are in this situation, I strongly urge you to seek legal advice. Sounds to me that it’s something that a lawyer, or CAB, or a shop steward should deal with on your behalf.

Hope this helps,
