If you are involved in a dispute, or you are facing the prospect of dealing with redundancy, you may need to deal with a Settlement Agreement. Settlement Agreements are normally prepared by the employer’s legal representatives and then independently checked by a legal representative for the employee. It is usual for the employer to meet the reasonable fees of the employee being advised
Usually, the employer will be making a payment to the employee and you in return for an effective waiver of any claims the employee may have. There are various requirements that must be fulfilled in order for a Settlement Agreement to be valid, and we will ensure that your Settlement Agreement fulfils all of these requirements.
