An employee must ensure that any reason given by an employer in a compromise agreement for the employee leaving his/her employment is accurate.

 Commonly, compromise agreements will say “your employment shall terminate on the Termination Date by reason of redundancy” or “your employment shall terminate on the Termination Date by mutual agreement”.  It is not unheard of for a compromise agreement to state that an employee’s employment will terminate “due to capability”, where this assertion might be contended by the employee, so it is important that an employee attempts to negotiate such expressions out of the compromise agreement as this could have an adverse effect on the employee’s endeavours to secure subsequent employment. The reason being that an employer could refer to this reason for leaving in the employee’s reference.
