Employee relations

Noelle MurphyEditor's message:In July 2013, changes came into force extending an employer's ability to have "protected conversations" with employees in certain circumstance, with a view to ending the employment relationship. Other changes saw compromise agreements were renamed settlement agreements.

We conducted research in pre-term negotiations and settlement agreements with 471 organisations, covering more than one million employees, to explore when, why and how settlement agreements are used by employers to facilitate employee departures. Overall, employers' experiences of the new legal regime have been largely positive.

Our benchmarking data and services provides you with full access to all of our latest findings, searchable by size and sector of organisation.
