Settlement Agreements – Legal advice for employees
A settlement agreement is a legally binding agreement between an employer and their employee. As well as bringing to a close any formal working relationship, the agreement will set out any compensation awarded to you as well as any terms or conditions that parties are bound to.
If you have been provided with a Settlement Agreement by your employer, or you have been advised that your employer intends to make you redundant, you will need legal advice on the terms of your redundancy. We are able to provide you with urgent legal advice to ensure you are agreeing to the right terms of redundancy, help you to negotiate fair terms and advise you on the legal implications of the terms of your Settlement Agreement.
We appreciate that these are stressful times for many employees and often your employer may pressurize an employee to accept the terms they have been offered. We are here to assist you with ensuring you have a clear understanding as to the terms of Settlement Agreement that you are signing and any implications this may have on your future employment. Employees will often request that we become the point of contact with your employer in order to find the best outcome for the employee.
