Settlement agreements

You may have heard the term “Compromise Agreements”. They were renamed Settlement Agreements, other than that they are pretty much the same thing. A settlement agreement is a legally enforceable document. It gives you peace of mind as a business owner that your employee won’t pursue matters further in a Court or Tribunal which could result in you being liable for compensation.

Parting company with a Director or a departing employee can be difficult. We have extensive experience in advising employers on the exit process to ensure that it is streamlined.

We can draft settlement agreements which are bespoke to the specific situation and advise you on the content, we can ensure that the process is completed swiftly and with minimum disruption to the business.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of us drafting a settlement agreement or how to exit an employee from the business please call us on 02392 801 102 or email us for a free initial chat.
