They will then often give you a letter with the note « without prejudice » setting out the details of this offer and sometimes the reasons for the offer and the consequences of the non-acceptance (for example. B, start a performance procedure or a dismissal exercise will take place). If the indemnification rule applies, the email, settlement agreement, or conversation that is not prejudicial is something that both parties to the labour dispute (you and your employer) must keep away from the minutes. Thus, if the case is brought before the courts, this point cannot be brought to the attention of the court or mentioned to the judge without prejudice. The general rules for the use and misuse of the « undamaged » and « under contract » sections are well established. However, recent cases show that such titles do not offer « magical protection » against legal consequences, regardless of the circumstances. Without prejudice, correspondence should not be confused with inside information. There is a clear difference, not least because privileged information is generally information that only one party has and is trying to retain, while correspondence without prejudice is information that has been shared between the two parties during the negotiations and is therefore known to both parties. Without prejudice, correspondence is more called quasi-privilege, as it could be classified as contract law on the basis of a tacit agreement between the two parties to protect communications from disclosure.6 However, a privilege only arises when there is a real problem between the parties and the letter (or discussion) is a real attempt to: to solve it. In Avonwick Holdings Limited v. Webinvest Limited (2014), the Court held that the title « without prejudice » had no effect because there was no litigation or evidence of an agreement at that time that the words would not be used in court.

[3] You really have to try to settle the case amicably, for example an offer of a sum of money for settlement. It is not enough to speak to the merits of the case and to say only the words « without prejudice », because in this scenario it is likely that protection would not apply. Manx Staniforth & Otr v Dukes Diner & Otrs 2011 Civil Summary Procedure (unredred) cited the English Court of Appeal case Rush & Tompkins – v – GLC [1989] AC 1280 to 1301, which stated, inter alia, that the communication should normally be inadmissible without prejudice in subsequent legal disputes. His cult of the High Bailiff said: « The rule is not absolute and such material can be seen if the justice of the case requires it. We are labour law specialists who only work on labour law cases and represent only employees (not employers). So we really understand what you`re doing if your employer treats you badly, and we can usually help you find a way forward. Without prejudice, English law was introduced to facilitate the settlement of amicable settlement agreements and thus save taxpayers` money by reducing the number of cases that end up in court. This guide discusses the meaning of « without bias » and explains how/when it is used in correspondence and meetings during exit negotiations.

Suppose that A, B and C are all parties to the same dispute, with A being the plaintiff and B and C being the co-defendants. If A is satisfied with B but pursues the claim against C, can the injurious communications that led to the settlement between A and B be cited as evidence in the ongoing dispute between A and C? The answer lies in the House of Lords decision in Rush & Tompkins -v- GLC17. .
