What is a Settlement Agreement?
A Settlement Agreement (previously known as a Compromise Agreement) is a legally binding way of concluding claims or potential claims between an employer and employee.
When the employment relationship breaks down our Employment Team are on hand to negotiate terms of settlement between the parties to avoid the need for lengthy and potentially costly employment tribunal proceedings.
Are you an Employee?
If you have been informed that your employment is to come to an end, we appreciate that this can be a very difficult and stressful time for you. Our qualified and professional Employment lawyers will provide you with quick, clear and practical advice to ensure that you receive the best settlement.
If your employer has offered you a Settlement Agreement you will need to take independent legal advice. We are here to explain to you in plain language what it all means and if required can negotiate terms of settlement on your behalf. We are always available no matter how urgent your matter is.
Your employer will normally make a contribution towards your legal costs which often means you do not have to pay anything for our help. We promise that you will not incur any costs without your knowledge and agreement.
