The use of settlement agreements and confidentiality clauses


23 / 12 / 2013

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:

  • what a settlement agreement is,
  • 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.
