Our lawyers have a wealth of experience when it comes to the negotiation of settlement agreements.
A settlement agreement is a legally binding agreement between an employer and an employee. The employer typically offers to pay the employee an enhanced sum of money in return for the employee agreeing to give up their right to bring claims arising out of their contract of employment and/or its termination.
In many respects, these agreements represent an ideal outcome for all parties concerned, with the employee avoiding the need to bring a costly and time-consuming claim against their employer.
Contact us as soon as possible if you have been offered a settlement agreement or are about to enter into negotiations with your employer concerning the proposed termination of your employment. Our lawyers will use their skill, knowledge and expertise to negotiate the best possible deal for you in your circumstances. Read a case study here, which shows how we helped an employee who felt she was treated unfairly.
