Arranging Your Settlement Agreement
What is a Settlement Agreement?
A settlement agreement is a legal document that ends your employment by mutual agreement with your employer.
Payment of a lump sum and sometimes other benefits usually form part of the agreement.
Settlement agreements are used when the relationship between employer and employee has broken down but are also frequently used as an alternative to going through a full redundancy process.
The agreement draws a line under everything that has gone before, enabling employer and employee to move on.
Very often employers make a contribution towards employee legal fees when a settlement agreement is required.
Why You Need an Expert Lawyer
When you sign a settlement agreement you are signing a legal document. It is, therefore, essential that you do so under the guidance of an expert employment solicitor, otherwise the agreement will not be binding.
By signing the agreement, you are relinquishing any right to bring legal action against your employer.
Your solicitor will go through the settlement agreement in detail with you to ensure the contents are correct and that you fully understand the implications of signing the document.
Once you sign the settlement agreement, it is legally binding and both parties must adhere to all of the requirements that are set out in it.
