What is a Settlement Agreement?

A Settlement Agreement is a legally binding agreement in which an employee waives the right to bring any claims against their employer. In return, they are paid a sum of money and usually agree as well to keep the agreement, and the circumstances that led to it, confidential. Wording for a reference will also often be agreed.

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 routinely advise on Settlement Agreements for employees at all levels, from part-time employees to senior executives and management.

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.
