Employee Settlement Agreements

Settlement agreements are a legally binding document which a business can utilise when terminating an employment.

Settlement agreements provide a watertight procedure that ensures there is no negative impact on your business. When an employee agrees to sign a settlement agreement they are signing away their right to lodge a tribunal claim against your business.

Employers are increasingly using settlement agreements as a mechanism for preventing tribunal claims at a later date. Settlement agreements are recognised by law meaning they are the safest way to terminate an employment.

We employ a (non-practising) employment lawyer and have a long-term partnership with a national firm of solicitors.  This enables us to help you manage settlement processes efficiently and pragmatically.

We can help:

  • Advise and manage when a settlement agreement might be appropriate
  • Supply UK employment law compliant settlement agreement documentation
  • Attend and manage settlement agreement meetings
