Settlement Agreements are often issued to employees who are leaving their employment either because of a dispute with their employer or as a result of redundancy or some other business reorganisation.
We advise on both the package being offered and the terms and effect of the Settlement Agreement itself. We will always make sure that you understand everything and are happy with the terms being offered.
If the situation is straightforward, we can give the necessary independent advice and get the agreement signed off quickly.
Where the package being offered is reasonable, Settlement Agreements can be an effective way of resolving a potentially difficult situation swiftly and amicably, enabling both parties to move on.
