Code Green: ACAS has today published guidance on the new ‘Settlement Agreements’.
The Guide published by ACAS today – “Settlement Agreements: a Guide” – is much wider than the Code and deals not just with the issue of confidentiality but also with best practice in relation to the form and the use of Settlement Agreements generally.
The Guide includes draft template letters and a model Settlement Agreement. Although the template letters and model agreement could be of use in the most straightforward of circumstances, given the potential for error we would always recommend that employers take legal advice when seeking to make use of the new Settlement Agreements.
