Have you been offered a settlement agreement? Perhaps you have raised a dispute against your employer? Or maybe you’ve been unfairly dismissed or made redundant? Whatever the reason, before you sign on the dotted line, it’s important to seek the advice and guidance of a professional employment solicitor – such as Prosperity Law LLP – to make sure everything is as it seems.
What is a settlement agreement?
A settlement agreement is a legally binding contract between an employee and an employer. They are most commonly used to agree the terms of employment termination. However, they can also be used to settle ongoing employment disputes, such as workplace discrimination and issues with pay.
Essentially, a simple settle agreement outlines a payment that the employee would be willing to accept to drop the claims against their employer – allowing both parties to avoid a long, complicated tribunal process. It should be customised to the specific employee and the individual circumstances of the case and the employee must always receive independent legal advice before signing.
