Settlement Agreements

If things get messy

A settlement agreement is a legally binding contract between employer and employee which is used to resolve a workplace dispute (including ending the employment relationship) on mutually agreed terms. We regularly advise on and prepare settlement agreements for our clients in situations where the employment relationship has broken down and where other procedures are inappropriate or too time consuming.

The main benefit is that the employer can be assured any departing employee (or dispute) will not be permitted to pursue a claim to the Employment Tribunal.
