We specialise in drafting and reviewing Settlement Agreements. These are agreements between employers and employees on the termination of the employment relationship and usually involve a payment of compensation to the employee in settlement of any potential claims arising out of the employment and its termination. In order for an agreement to be binding, the employee must receive independent legal advice as to its terms and the effect of the agreement on the rights of the employee to pursue different claims. Employers usually make a contribution towards the employee's costs in taking such advice.
Please contact us if you are an employer who needs assistance in preparing a Settlement Agreement or if you are an employee who needs to take advice about a Settlement Agreement.
