Redundancy arises where a job ceases to exist. Employees have various rights during a redundancy process and the onus is on the employer to make sure that that they have done everything correctly and that the employee has been treated fairly.
Settlement agreements (formerly compromise agreements) are legally binding contracts for an employer and employee to settle any claims that have arisen under the employment relationship or due to the termination of employment. These agreements result in the employee waiving their rights to bring a claim against the employer in return for a severance payment.
