Settlement of Claims and Exit Packages – a practical guide for HR and Employment Practitioners
Tuesday 3rd March 2020, 17:00 – 19:00 @ Clyde & Co, Manchester Register here
Join us at this evening session for a practical and interactive seminar where strategies and the legal framework will be discussed relating to all things ‘settlement’.
We will look at how the ‘without prejudice’ rule and the ‘protected conversations’ regime are applied in respect of settling employment disputes either before or after a tribunal claim has been started. We shall consider how not to fall foul of these rules and what behaviour might indeed risk such a situation arising.
An examination of the differences between and the benefits and drawbacks of both ‘settlement agreements’ and ‘COT3 Agreements’ will be made along with typical issues that might arise in respect of certain types of clauses in such agreements – such as confidentiality restrictions.
Finally an opportunity for everyone to share their ‘top tips’ on approaches to and techniques to apply in discussing and negotiating settlements and exits will finish off this interactive talk.
