Settlement Agreements - Securing the best outcome


Receiving a settlement agreement (formerly known as a compromise agreement) from your employer can be a daunting experience. The process of negotiating a settlement agreement can be made much easier with the advice of experienced employment solicitors. 

What is a settlement agreement?

Settlement agreements can be used as a way of terminating employment. Your employer can ask you to sign a settlement agreement in order to capture the terms associated with the termination of the employment relationship. We provide thorough and well-focused advice in order to ensure your interests are protected and so as to ensure that you secure the best commercial outcome possible. In our vast experience, we find that there are often a number of issues that require attention. What is more, we find that the first offer made by an employer in these circumstances, is rarely the best offer!

How to respond to a settlement agreement

An employee should immediately seek employment legal advice when they receive a settlement agreement. In fact, the employee is obliged to do so. We can assist with the appropriate response to the production of a settlement agreement.

If you've received a settlement agreement please get in touch with our Employment team for a no obligation, no commitment conversation through the contact form or by calling 01242 300 024 to discuss your options.
