Ive just had an awful.year since returning frm MAT leave (been discriminated against)and now i found another job. I want to hit them back before i leave....someone suggested a comprimise agreement as i have evidence to show my managers didnt help me....

I am in a similar situation, discriminated against during maternity leave and now it's unbearable so I'll be leaving. I have raised a grievance which I hope will end in a compromise agreement. They are currently investigating the grievance and I've no idea how long that will take them.

Your employer will likely only offer a compromise agreement if there's a risk of them facing tribunal (and losing).

In what way did they discriminate and what didn't they help you with?

Are you in a union?

What makes you think they might offer you a compromise agreement OP? Have you been through a grievance procedure? Are you at the point where you could bring a claim that they would want to avoid?

So i believe for a formal grievence it will.take them 14 days to get back to you.

I havent raised one but im jumping straight to it, in hopes it will get raised quicker.

I submitted a letter to both my managers in december dating and listing a whole years worth of discriminitive times ive faced....neither of them got back to me to address the issue...ACAS said thats a form of victimisation. Ive also printed evidence where my manager hasnt been supportive or bypassed me etc

Im hoping that audit trail (and the fact the issues werent addressed) is enough to scare them.

They might consider a settlement agreement (they are no longer called compromise agreements and so its odd that ACAS used that terminology), it really depends on how much of a case you have. Its rare though when you haven't exhausted the grievance procedure unless they want rid of you anyway.

I'm an employment lawyer and do this day in day out.

PM me if you need a referral/recommendation. You need a solicitor to sign off a settlement agreement.

If you've already got another job do you not need to hand your notice in yet? Obviously the chances of them wanting to pay you off will reduce significantly at that point...
