Guidance to help outline some of the legal boundaries which employers need to think about when considering the use of settlement agreements when terminating employment.
This includes providing clarity on:

- when to use a settlement agreement,
- an example clause relating to PIDA which should now be included in all agreements,
- the statutory requirements,
- the types of confidentiality clauses that can be legitimately used.
