Settlement Agreement Solicitors

Settlement Agreement Solicitors in London, Watford, Bristol and Birmingham

Settlement agreements are normally used when bringing an employment relationship to an end in a way agreed by both the employer and employee to reach a conclusion to a workplace dispute.

A settlement agreement is a legally binding document which sets out mutually agreed terms and conditions to settle a potential employment tribunal claim, or other court proceedings.

Our experienced settlement agreement solicitors assist both employers and employees to reach amicable agreements to resolve such disputes. Reaching an amicable agreement between employer and employee can avoid substantial costs incurred bringing, or defending an employment tribunal claim.

For specialist and cost effective legal advice, contact Rebecca Fox on 01923 919 323

Settlement Agreement Advice for Employees

For employees, a properly negotiated agreement can be a highly effective method to ensure that you are adequately compensated for the termination of your employment.

Why do I need a solicitor to review my settlement agreement?

Though you may have agreed the terms of your agreement in principle, you will still require legal advice to ensure that you fully understand the terms of the agreement, and in particular how it will affect your ability to bring a claim against your employer.

How much does a settlement agreement cost?

In simple cases we provide the employee with advice on the terms and implications of the agreement, discuss the circumstances of your employment and provide advice on the amount of compensation you have been offered.

Typically, employers offer a contribution towards legal costs and it may be sufficient to cover your legal fees.

However, in more complex cases where an employee wishes to challenge the amount offered or to re-draft the agreement, the legal fees will increase. This may require costs over the employers agreed contribution to be paid by the employee.

In any case, our legal fees are transparent so that our clients are fully informed of costs throughout the process.

Will my employer pay increased costs?

In some cases, the employer may be willing to increase their contribution towards the legal cost of the settlement agreement. Our solicitors can negotiate with your employer on your behalf if changes to the agreement are required that will incur additional legal costs.
