Client has been offered a COT3 settlement payment of £21k to avoid her case going to an employment tribunal for unfair dismissal and disability discrimination.
Client receives PIP and contribution-based ESA.
Will this settlement payment affect her ESA or other benefits?
The settlement is called a post-termination payment which is non-taxable if it’s below £30k.
