In this case, it was a commission exchange service (SPC). An ACAS transaction agreement has been entered into with the original employer. However, the agreement did not include two other potential parties to which the worker can assert rights. The EAT found that claims could continue to be made against these parties, as the scope of the agreement applied only to the original employer and did not apply tacitly to others. Most labour law rights can only be settled in this way, for example. B unjustified dismissals, discrimination, etc. Some labour law rights are considered so sacred that they cannot even be revoked in a transaction contract. Among the rights that cannot be abandoned are some errors of collective consultation (where there is a transfer of TUPE or collective dismissal), certain claims under the 2010 Agency Workers` Regulation (although these may be governed by a COT3 agreement), rights to blacklists and the rights to legal treatment of maternity, paternity or adoption. First, the transaction contract must be consistent with the legal provisions that provide that transaction agreements can be used to cover a large number of other rights that are not specifically related to labour law, such as the obligation to respond to the contract (which would cover the payment of termination, etc.) and the rights to personal injury. Tamang – Anor v (1) ACT Security Ltd (2) Euro Storage UK Ltd UKEAT/0046/12/BA (31 August 2012) appears to be such a case. In this case, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) found that the existence of a compromise agreement with Reliance, the outgoing employer, did not prevent the former employees from asserting the action against the new owner. The complainants complained that they had not implemented the consultation and information provisions in accordance with sections 13 to 16 of the TUPE regulations. They also deplored an unfair and illegal dismissal.
You, the employer and the purchaser have agreed on conditions for the settlement of all rights, which you have against the employer and/or the purchaser resulting from your employment and dismissal [including the [Claim (s), AND/OR Court Claim, AND/OR High Court Claim] ] and which terminates your employment with the employer and provides that this agreement constitutes an effective waiver of those rights and meets the terms of the agreement. It is a legal contract between the employee and the employer to settle a labour dispute. Section 203 (3) of the Employment Rights Act 1996 sets the terms for a valid compromise agreement, but a compromise agreement was reached with CASA to settle the claim. One of the complainants received a payment of USD 3,696, the other $2,956. In the text of the transaction, the payments were described as “full and final accounts of the procedure and any claims he has or may have against the respondent and/or the group or one of its senior executives, agents or enforcement officers resulting from his employment or termination or transfer to a third party.” In a letter to the Tribunal from Reliance`s lawyers and the applicants, it was requested that the legal proceedings be withdrawn: “The parties herebly request that the labour court dismiss appeal 3303259/2010 against Securitas Security Services (UK) Limited only… A well-written transaction contract also deals with the following (and therefore can be very long): there are certain labour law rights that workers can only waive if an agreement is reached in the right format.
