Settlement agreements

When your employment ends, it can sometimes involve a settlement agreement. This is a formal document which brings your employment to an end - it also terminates any claim you may have against your employer.

When the decision is taken to end an employment relationship, it can be a time of uncertainty. Disputes can arise over the decision to dismiss. Directors can fall out over future business strategy or investment decisions. You may feel your position is untenable or that your employer wants you to resign and is forcing you to do so. Alternatively, your employment may end due to restructuring of the company.

Settlement agreements are legally binding documents. David & Snape can explain what one is and what it means, should you sign one. In return for an agreed financial amount, you agree to waive any claim you may have. Your claim may have a higher potential value. We explain what your options are and if this is the best outcome. Terms need to be agreed by you. At every step, we use plain English, not legal jargon. If you sign, you know fully what you are agreeing to. In most cases, our fees will be paid by your employer.

To help you resolve your dispute, and to talk about settlement agreements, call Jonathan Chubb or Lindsey Scourfield today on 01656 661115.
