Acas consults on Settlement Agreements Code

Acas has launched a consultation on a new Code of Practice on Settlement Agreements.

Settlement agreements are legally binding contracts which can be used to end the employment relationship on agreed terms.

The Government is introducing new legislation which will mean that any offers or discussions about settlement agreements cannot be used as evidence in an unfair dismissal claim unless either of the parties has engaged in some improper behaviour.

The Acas Code will come into effect alongside the new legislative provision to help everyone in the workplace understand how it will work in practice. The Code will also explain what constitutes improper behaviour.
