When an employer wishes to terminate a person’s employment, this is often achieved by use of a Settlement Agreement. In essence, the employer pays the outgoing employee a sum of money as compensation in exchange for the employee promising not to sue the employer for anything further, for example for alleged Unfair Dismissal.
To be legally binding, the Agreement must be explained in detail to the employee by a solicitor. The employer almost invariably pays for this consultation.
We have been advising local employees on Settlement Agreements for 16 years, and know exactly what deficiencies to look out for. Where requested, we will attempt to negotiate better terms.
