There are certain labour rights that workers can only give up if an agreement is reached in the right format. Essentially, these are either negotiated agreements with COT3 agreements or “transaction agreements” that must meet the following requirements. The recent case of the Employment Appeal Tribunal, which entered into a transaction agreement between the employee and an employer, does not automatically prevent the worker from asserting rights against other employers involved in a transfer of TUPE. How can we help you We can represent you if an action is taken against you in an employment tribunal to ensure that you follow the procedures, that you conduct the final hearing and that, if necessary, you arrange legal representation for you. Your case is carefully prepared and presented in the best possible way with the facts before us. We will also try to negotiate on an ongoing basis to try to find a solution before the issue is so advanced. For more information, please contact Alexis Lane in our employment department. If there is no agreement, an employer may terminate a worker`s existing contract and offer employment on new terms. However, this is a legal dismissal and the worker can claim wrongful dismissal rights if he has two years of seniority. Whether dismissal is fair depends on why the changes are necessary and whether employers can prove that they had an essential reason.
However, a court would still expect that there would have been consultations and an attempt to reach an agreement first. You, the employer and the purchaser have agreed on conditions for the settlement of all rights, which you have against the employer and/or the purchaser resulting from your employment and dismissal [including the [Claim (s), AND/OR Court Claim, AND/OR High Court Claim] ] and which terminates your employment with the employer and provides that this agreement constitutes an effective waiver of those rights and meets the terms of the agreement.
