A Settlement Agreement is a legally binding agreement between an employer and an employee which is entered into following a decision to part company.
Before entering into a Settlement Agreement the employee is required to take independent legal advice.
The employee’s legal advice is generally paid for by the employer so it doesn’t normally cost the employee anything.

When a Settlement Agreement is signed the employee waives their right to make a claim. It is therefore vital to receive advice from a specialist solicitor.
