Settlement Agreements for Employers

As an employer, you need to understand when it may be the right time to offer your employee a settlement agreement.

Alternatively, if you’re approached by an employee requesting a settlement agreement, you may require legal advice on what to do next.

What is a Settlement Agreement?

A settlement agreement is a legally binding contract between employers and employees (or former employees) to settle claims and potential claims on agreed terms.

For a settlement agreement to be valid it must be in writing, and should reflect to a particular complaint or proceedings.  The employee must obtain independent legal advice before signing it.

How can we help?

Our experienced, dedicated employment law solicitors in Chester & Shrewsbury specialise in drafting and negotiating settlement agreements to suit your needs.

Areas of Expertise:
  • Drafting a settlement agreement to offer your employee
  • Negotiating the terms of the settlement agreement with the other party
  • Providing tailored advice to your specific circumstances
  • Responding and advising on a settlement agreement offer received from an employee
  • Reviewing and advising on a settlement agreement, making sure you understand the terms before signing
I also want to say thank you for the calm, courteous and professional way that you have helped me through this stressful process. It was not easy after 30 years with one employer, to stop my emotions taking over my decision making. You helped me keep my focus by providing clear and objective advice. You also took the bulk of the paperwork burden from me, which helped me enormously. I would recommend you, without a moment’s hesitation, to other people I know who need this type of service. Once again THANK YOU.
