New factsheet on settlement agreements and speaking up

NHS Employers has launched a new resource to help employers and workers understand their rights when entering into a settlement agreement.

The new factsheet, Settlement agreements: a factsheet for employers and workers about speaking up, was developed following a roundtable with the National Guardian's Office (NGO) and six major law firms who work with the NHS.

The resource includes key information around the use of confidentiality clauses and reassures employers and workers who may wish to speak up to ensure high quality safe care is maintained.

It should be read in conjunction with our guidance on the use of settlement agreements and confidentiality clauses, which has also been updated, and makes it clear that confidentiality clauses should not be added in the cases of Mutually Agreed Redundancy Schemes (MARS) and sets out the broader legal requirements for employers in more detail.
