There is no difference. Settlement Agreements (previously known as compromise agreements) are used when an employee and employer want to come to an amicable solution and avoid tribunal proceedings. A settlement agreement is sometimes referred to as a “golden handshake.” Negotiating this fairly is essential to keep both the employer and employee happy – but, very often, this negotiation doesn’t take place.
A settlement agreement ensures that employers would not have to face any legal action in relation to any dispute in the future from their departing employee and can help them avoid a public employment tribunal claim.
Settlement Agreement includes an agreed settlement sum for employees which they would receive from their employer if they agree to not pursue any employment tribunal proceeding against their employer. They can also negotiate a reference.
