Settlement Agreements for Employers

For any employer in Shrewsbury, it’s important to have an understanding of when it may be the right time to offer an employee a settlement agreement.

Equally, should an employee ever approach you to request a settlement agreement, it may be that you’ll require expert legal advice on how to best respond.

What is a Settlement Agreement?

Settlement agreements are legally binding contracts between an employer and employee (or former employee) to settle any claim/s or potential claim/s with agreed upon terms.

To ensure the validity of a settlement agreement, it must be recorded in writing, as well as referencing particular complaints or proceedings.  Additionally, the employee must access their own independent legal advice before they sign the agreement.

How can we help?

What I find differentiates them in comparison to other law firms I have used is they don’t just quote the legal text book at me, but understand I need pragmatic and experienced advice when it comes to potential risk to the business. Their understanding of commercial needs is refreshing; perhaps because of this, they also appreciate that sometimes, advice is needed ‘right now’; tomorrow will not suffice.

Every member of the team has been exceptionally efficient, while still keeping a personal and friendly approach, with prompt and relevant responses. The knowledge, expertise and professionalism of the team is the reason I will always recommend Aaron & Partners.

A company that is friendly, easy to work with and takes their time to understand the particular industry concerns and then comes up with comprehensive solutions and advice. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. I can’t recommend their services highly enough.

Aaron & Partners have represented us with our business legal requirements with utmost professionalism and courtesy for over eight years. I cannot recommend them highly enough to anyone seeking legal advice.
