Settlement Agreements for Employees

Settlement Agreements serve as legally binding contracts made between an employer and employee (or former employee) in order to settle a claim, and in many cases end the employment, on mutually agreed terms. They also waive the individual’s legal right to any future claim or action, including making Employment Tribunal claims or seeking court remedies on the matters specifically covered in the settlement. This type of agreement can be proposed in advance of other formal processes, often including some level of payment to the employee made by the employer, and can also include features such as a reference.

It’s important to know that in order for the Settlement Agreement to be legally valid, it needs to be recorded in writing, with reference to the particular complaint or proceedings being settled. Additionally, both the employer and the employees must access independent legal advice before signing any Settlement Agreement.

Employees must be aware of their rights when they are offered a Settlement Agreement by their employer, to help them understand what they should do next. It is also worth noting that Settlement Agreements can also be offered from an employee to an employer.

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.
