Thanks for your patience. There is sadly no fixed way of determining what you can ask from them and in the end it would be a sum which both you and the employer are happy to accept. It would therefore require negotiations between yourselves to reach something which you both agree to. As a starting point you would be looking to receive everything you are entitled to under contract, such as contractual notice period and holidays and then an additional sum on top to compensate you for giving up your rights to claim. This could for example be something along the lines of several month’s pay, but the risk is if you go in too high it may put the employer off further negotiations so you also need to be realistic. If you are unsure you may wish to have a sum in mind which you are willing to leave for and ask the employer to propose the amount they are willing to part with. You then have a figure to work with and can always negotiate around it and try to increase it, remembering that their first offer is unlikely to be their best. But as mentioned there is no fixed way to calculate this – it is only whatever sum you and the employer are both happy withy and this could vary significantly in every situation where a different employee/employer is involved as everyone will have different expectations.
