Settlement Agreements

If you and your employer have decided to go your separate ways following a dispute, disciplinary action or redundancy, you may be invited to sign a Settlement Agreement.

This agreement usually records the payment of money from the employer to the employee in return for the employee's agreement not to bring certain claims against the employer in the future.

You must seek legal advice if you are offered a Settlement Agreement. You will need to be advised of the terms of the agreement and the effect of signing it. You will want to consider whether you are being properly compensated for agreeing not to make any claims against your employer. You also need to ensure you know about any ongoing obligations.

We would be pleased to advise you on any proposed Settlement Agreement and to negotiate the terms with your employer to help you in getting the best deal. Your employer will usually cover the cost of this advice. Please telephone for a free initial discussion about this.
