Compromise agreements: List of compromised claims was illustrative only

This report relates to 1 case(s)

  • expand disabled

    Hinton v University of East London [2004] All ER (D) 323 (Oct) EAT (0 other reports)

Key points

In University of East London v Hinton, the EAT holds:

  • Section 203(3) of the ERA 1996 does not require compromise agreements to specify the precise claim(s) that are being settled. The requirement in s.203(3) that the compromise agreement must relate to "particular proceedings" simply means that the compromise agreement must relate to complaints which had already been raised between the parties.
