In redundancies and in respect of compromise agreements, the idea behind the adviser’s certificate is to signify that independent legal advice has been given to the employee in question. The lawyer providing independent legal advice on the terms of the compromise agreement must sign the adviser’s certificate.

Equally most severance agreements will contain a warranty that the employee gives to the employer that he or she has received independent legal advice from that lawyer.

Redundancy payment will only be made against the signed adviser’s certificate and compromise agreement, which has been signed by the employee and the employer.
