What is a Settlement Agreement, and why should I speak to a Solicitor?
An employment-related Settlement Agreement (sometimes referred to as a Compromise Agreement) is a contract drawn up between an employer and an employee to cover the specific terms and payments due when an employment contract is terminated.
In a usual situation, the employer agrees to pay the employee a certain sum of money, known as an exit package or severance pay. By signing the Settlement Agreement, the employee will not be entitled to contest this sum or any other arrangements in the future.
Employers are not legally required to provide Settlement Agreements, although many do. If you don't get offered one, you should ask your employer or HR department for one. To ensure you are receiving the very best exit package, it is advised to consult the services of an experienced Settlement Agreement Solicitor. A Settlement Agreement will only become legally binding after the employee has consulted with a suitably qualified Solicitor.
