Settlement Agreements

Clear, practical advice to protect your employment rights

Problems with your employer can be confusing, upsetting and highly stressful. You may have lost your job and be in serious financial difficulties. Or you might still be in work but dealing with a situation that is making your professional life very difficult. You may be unsure about your legal rights and what, if anything, you can do to put things right.

Whatever situation you find yourself in, our employment law solicitors can offer immediate, expert support, either by telephone or in a face to face meeting. You will then deal with the same person every step of the way, so you always know you to speak to when you have a question and they will get to know you and your case personally.

In the majority of cases, workplace disputes can be resolved quickly and cost-effectively through negotiation, early conciliation and other non-confrontational methods. This not only saves you time and money, it can also keep things much less stressful and let you maintain a better relationship with your employer or former employer.

We know how intimidating it can be to raise an issue at work or to ask for help, but we pride ourselves on being approachable and honest. We want you to feel completely comfortable discussing your situation openly, safe in the knowledge that everything you tell us will be treated with the strictest confidence.

Settlement agreements

Increasingly, employers will seek to resolve employment disputes or avoid potential employment disputes using a settlement agreement. This involves you signing a legal agreement stating that you will not take a specific matter to an employment tribunal, usually in exchange for a one-off payment.

Settlement agreements can be good for employees as they can allow a dispute to be resolved faster and with less stress and uncertainty, as well as giving you guaranteed compensation. However, you must take independent legal advice for the agreement to be binding and to ensure you are being treated fairly with the amount of compensation offered.

We are highly experienced with reviewing and negotiating settlement agreements, so whether you have already been offered an agreement or wish to discuss making an agreement with an employer, we can provide the expert support you need.
