Impact Assessment for the amendment of Section 147 of the Equality Act 2010 – Meaning of "qualifying compromise contract"
Differing interpretations of the meaning of Section 147 of the Equality Act 2010 have resulted in employers and employees being reluctant to use compromise contracts as a means of settling discrimination disputes at work. The government has therefore decided to amend Section 147 to clarify its meaning. This document was laid before Parliament on 13 February 2012, with a coming into force date of 6 April 2012.
