Confidential Pre-Termination Negotiations: Commencement Date

  • Posted

Confidential pre-termination negotiations, contained in s14 of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013, are coming into force on 29th July (see commencement order).

Also coming into force on 29th July is the re-naming of 'compromise agreements' as 'settlement agreements' (and well done to Zandau Laffart Weir solicitors for snaffling the website).

Confidential pre-termination negotiations are important.  They are a new, complex, statutory framework which will allow certain discussions to be kept confidential from a tribunal in most unfair dismissal cases.  If you want to know a little more, here is a sample of the slides I'll be using at the Employment Law MasterClasses this month.
