What is a compromise agreement?

A compromise agreement is a legally binding document that sets out an agreement between an employer and employee with regards to termination of employment. It is often used in a situation where an employee is, or claims to have been, unfairly dismissed from their role.

Please complete the information below. This will provide an indication as the potential level of an employee’s entitlement. This is an indication only based on gross salary and length of service – it is impossible for the calculator to factor-in all possible employment circumstances.

The Calculator

This calculator has been formulated to assist both employers and employees to have an understanding of an employee’s potential entitlement to compensation where their employment is terminated, whether by redundancy or under the terms of a compromise agreement. It provides an indication as to the level of entitlement based upon the employee’s individual gross salary and length of service.

Assumptions and Limitations

The calculator is based on gross salary and length of service. No account is taken of any potential claim for discrimination. No account is taken of an employee’s contractual or non-contractual benefits, such as holiday pay, sick leave, bonuses, or share options. If any of these issues arise bespoke advice should be obtained from one of our team.

The calculator does not make provision for any contribution towards an employee’s legal fees. There is no legal requirement for an employer to make any contribution towards an employee’s legal fees. In practice, a contribution is usually offered but it is unlikely to cover all of an employee’s legal fees.

It is assumed that the employee has passed any probationary period.
