Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to be able to assist with your question today. Please let me know how long you have worked there?
Hello Ben, I worked there from June 2011 to 30/4/13
The starting point is that you cannot force your employer to enter into a compromise agreement. That is an entirely voluntary process and it is their prerogative to refuse to agree to one if they want to. If that is the case you will have to consider whether to make a legal claim against them instead. You may then either seek compensation from that if it is accepted and you win, or that action itself could prompt the employer to reconsider their position and agree on a compromise agreement in order to settle the claim you have brought against them.
As you have resigned now due to these issues the only claim you can make against the employer would be for constructive dismissal. This is where you have been forced to leave your employment due to a fundamental breach of contract by your employer or its employees.
A common breach by the employer occurs when they, or their employees, have broken the implied term of trust and confidence. The conduct relied on could be a single act, or a series of less serious acts over a period of time, which together could be treated as serious enough (usually culminating in the 'last straw' scenario).
You have 3 months from the last day of your employment to make the claim in the employment tribunal.
I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating - your question will not close and I can continue providing further advice if necessary. Thank you
