    Effective date of termination: Unexecuted compromise agreement did not terminate employment

    In Radecki v Kirklees Metropolitan Borough Council EAT/0114/08, the EAT held that the contract of an employee with whom the employer was negotiating a compromise agreement terminated not on the date specified in the informally agreed draft agreement, but four months later when the employer told him unequivocally that it considered that his employment had ended. Accordingly, the three-month time limit for presentation of the employee's unfair dismissal complaint ran from that later date.

    Hilton UK Hotels Ltd v McNaughton

    In Hilton UK Hotels Ltd v McNaughton EAT/0059/04, the Employment Appeal Tribunal held that, where a compromise agreement included the qualification that settled claims would extend only to those that the employee 'believed' that she had at the date of her signature on the agreement, this did not preclude a future claim of which she was unaware at this time.
