Settlement Agreements Advice


This is not uncommon and there is something you can do about it. To avoid going to tribunal a lot of employees will consider a settlement agreement which could provide you with substantial compensation. If you have a particularly strong case it's in your interest to seek help when negotiating settlement agreements.

This is an agreement between yourself and your ex-employer which prevents you from taking a case of unfair dismissal to a tribunal. Because employers will usually want to avoid court cases, it's in their interests to provide you with a settlement agreement that you're happy with. However obtaining what you actually deserve can be tricky and there are many things to consider.

This is why we'll help you at each stage so you can sign a settlement agreement you're happy with. This is very important as once you've signed it it is legally binding which means that you cannot take your case to a tribunal or any other court.

The employer will usually have terms relating to confidentially, negative comments and any pre-existing terms regarding being employed by their competitors. All of these are perfectly usual but do make sure you seek our advice on all the aspects of the contract. Our employment law solicitors will be more than happy to provide any help you feel you need.
