What is a settlement agreement?

A settlement agreement (formerly known as a compromise agreement) is a legally binding contract which terminates your employment on agreed terms, often providing compensation in exchange for you waiving some of your employment rights and not pursuing a claim in the Employment Tribunal.

Signing a settlement agreement should not be taken lightly and specialist legal advice is essential to ensure you fully understand what you are signing, including the compensation you are to receive and your obligations and restrictions outlined in the agreement.

Donnelly & Elliott’s specialist employment lawyers are experienced in reviewing and advising on settlement agreements.

Regardless of the reason for being offered a settlement agreement, Donnelly & Elliott can help by reviewing your agreement, ensuring that it covers what you require and advising on the next steps.

Should we find that the terms of the settlement agreement proposed does not cover what is agreed or you feel that you are not in a position to accept the terms proposed, Donnelly & Elliott can negotiate with your employer on your behalf to facilitate reaching an appropriate agreement.

You should know…
It is important to note that there are a number of claims which cannot be waived in a settlement agreement, for example an employee’s accrued pension rights.

It is also important that any claims that may have been open to an employee to pursue are adequately addressed in the agreement in terms of the settlement figure, ensuring that gives fair value for their role and length of service.
