Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Does this dispute involve employment law?
We are independent company and the customer hired us to do some building work for him at his property
I am not sure if this dispute involve employment law
The term 'compromise agreement' is one which is specific to disputes between employer and employee. It would not be appropriate for this to cover the kind of dispute that you are in.
it is sort of temporary employment I guess
how should we call it then?
~What is the dispute about?
we did not finish the work on time and we agreed to pay back some money to the customer and let him hire somebody else to finish it
You just need to write to them and say that the payment is made in 'full and final settlement' of any claims that may arise from your contract to do the work.
if they were then to institute proceedings you can give evidence that the claim was settled and apply for costs.
If you have any further questions please ask. If i have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
