When your employment ends, it can sometimes involve a Settlement Agreement. QualitySolicitors Lawson & Thompson can explain what this is, help you agree one and make sure your rights are taken care of.
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. 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. We can explain what one is and what it means, should you sign one. Briefly and in return for an agreed financial amount, you agree with your employer to waive any claim you may have. Your claim may have a higher potential value than the settlement agreement and so 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.
