Protected discussions leading to a Settlement Agreement In this episode 166 of the podcast I am covering an issue that was raised by a listener to the podcast, namely when you can rely on Section 111A of the Employment Rights Act 1996 to prevent settlement discussions being used against you as evidence.
In this episode of the podcast I cover:
What a protected conversation is. What the purpose of Section 111A Employment Rights Act is. What the difference is between a protected conversation under the statutory provision and the without prejudice rules. When to be cautious about settlement discussions.
