Settlement Agreement Solicitors
We specialise in advising on Settlement Agreements and make it as easy as possible for you to work with us.
We routinely draft Settlement Agreements, advise on them, and negotiate compensation packages to get the best result possible for our clients.
What is a Settlement Agreement?
Settlement Agreements will usually terminate the employment relationship but that does not necessarily have to be the case. As an example, a Settlement Agreement could resolve a complaint of discrimination brought by an employee but leave the employment relationship alive.
It is a legal requirement that employees take independent legal advice before signing a settlement agreement.
Settlement Agreements for Employees
We will go through your agreement with you and explain it to you in plain and simple terms to make sure you understand the implications of signing. We will also discuss your compensation package with you and negotiate directly with your employer to improve it if needed. We can also quickly identify anything unfair or out of the ordinary in the agreement you have been offered, and request any changes needed.
If negotiation on the wording of your settlement agreement or the amount of your compensation package is needed, we can negotiate directly with your employer, HR or their legal advisor.
