A Settlement Agreement is a formal written agreement that brings to an end a contract of employment. Settlement Agreements can work well for both employers & employees where things have gone wrong or where there is a redundancy. This is because they remove the uncertainty, risk & stress of Tribunal claims. They are usually much less costly too.

Essentially, a Settlement Agreement compromises any dispute between the employer and employee and will prevent the employee from bringing any claims in the Employment Tribunals or the civil courts. In return, the employee will receive a lump sum or termination payment and usually a written employment reference as well. The employer will also make a contribution to the employee’s costs in taking his/her own legal advice in relation to the Settlement Agreement. Because of this, we are often able to advise without further charge to you.

Your employer may have already sent a draft Settlement Agreement to you. We will explain what the Settlement Agreement means, negotiate with your employer (or their solicitors) and then make sure that everything is signed off properly.
