Is that really all I need to know about agreements? In that case, the complainant and his brother, the second defendant, had a long-standing dispute over the management of their affairs. As a result, the applicant instructed the bank to freeze the commercial bank account. The brothers then agreed to an agreement in which the complainant`s share of the case was purchased by his brother for $1.6 million. As part of the agreement, the applicant agreed to order the bank to cancel the investment bank account in exchange for the payment of an initial dividend. The Brothers entered into an initial settlement agreement setting out these key conditions, which allowed the bank account not to be frozen after the payment of the initial dividend. However, the brothers were unable to agree, as expected, on detailed terms of transaction and the agreement was not reached. The applicant decided to initiate proceedings to recover the amount agreed under the original agreement. In particular, his brother claimed that the initial transaction contract was not binding. The court disagreed. He noted that the parties to an agreement could intend to be bound without delay, even if other conditions had been agreed or an additional formality had to be met. The lack of a detailed transaction agreement is not a problem, as the original agreement was feasible and secure and, therefore, enforceable by the applicant. Transaction agreements are very common, but they often contain errors that, when challenged, are not enough to protect the employer from claims.
In the case of Lunt/Merseyside  IRLR 458 A complaint of discrimination on the basis of sex, Ms. Lunt, survived the settlement agreement, as the agreement did not meet the technical requirements of section 77 (4A) (f) of the Sex Discrimination Act, that it was to “indicate that the terms governing compromise contracts under this Act are met,” even though it intended to pay the employer to settle all of Ms. Lunt`s potential claims and rights. If a debt has been transferred, check the transfer agreement and see if another person interested in the claim should be mentioned in comparison. Similarly, close parties, such as a parent company, subsidiary or director, must be involved.
