Should you sign?
Whether or not the amount offered under a compromise agreement is appropriate for you to give up your right to make legal claims will depend on factors, including:
- the circumstances in which the compromise agreement is offered
- the amount you earn
- how soon you expect to get a similarly paid job
- the strength of any claim you may have, and
- the time, resources and potential costs involved in litigating any claim(s) you may have as an alternative to signing the compromise agreement
