Settlement Agreements for Employees

A Settlement Agreement is a legally binding contract between employers and employees (or former employees) to settle claims and often end employment on agreed terms. They waive the individual’s right to future legal action, Employment Tribunal or Court remedies on matters that are specifically covered in the agreement. Settlement agreements may be proposed prior to any other formal process and often include some form of payment to the employee from the employer and may include matters such as a reference.

In order for a Settlement Agreement to be valid it must be in writing, in relation to a particular complaint or proceedings and both employers and employees must obtain independent legal advice prior to signing the Settlement Agreement.

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.

As an employee you need to be aware of your rights if you are offered a Settlement Agreement by your employer and what to do next. In addition you can in fact offer a Settlement Agreement to your employer.
