Equality Act Compromise Agreements

[Thanks to Neil Russell of BD Laddie for telling me about this]

The furore continues. Two goliaths of the employment law world, John Bowers QC and Tom Linden QC, have provided Advices which reach precisely opposite conclusions on the thorny issue of whether certain compromise agreements can ever be valid under s147 of the Equality Act 2010. Copies of their Advices can be seen here.

The Law Society has produced a new Practice Note summarising the two views. The Practice Note gives very helpful Guidance. Definitely one worth studying.
