Services for Employees

A settlement agreement is a legal contract which ends the relationship between you and your employer. Perhaps there has been a dispute at work or you have simply been made redundant? By signing this voluntary agreement, you agree not to pursue an employment tribunal claim against your employer. 

If you have been given a settlement agreement by your employer, it is important that you get expert legal advice. Whatever industry you work in, we can review your settlement agreement and if necessary:

  • Help you decide if you should accept the settlement agreement or not (if you are unsure)
  • Explain the meaning of particular clauses to you 
  • Negotiate with your employer for a better deal if appropriate

It can be upsetting and stressful when employment comes to an end. Our employment experts have answered some Frequently Asked Question on settlement agreements to help you. Included is information on Who pays? and How do I know if the compensation is fair? Read our FAQs here.

Services for Employers

If you are an employer and need help with how to approach an employee about a Settlement Agreement we can help you. We can advise you on drafting the terms of a settlement agreement to suit your business needs. If redundancies are being made on a large scale, it may be more cost efficient to draft bulk settlement agreements.
