What is a Settlement Agreement?

A Settlement Agreement is a legally binding contract between an employer and an employee. The content of this contract must be agreed upon by both parties. This document provides information about termination payments and the agreed terms of employment termination. In simple words, this agreement provides a mechanism to terminate your employment; essentially, you sign away your right to pursue any claims in exchange for an agreed sum of money.

Regardless of the nature of the agreement, this legal resource is recognised and encouraged by the UK Government.

Benefits of Settlement Agreements

For Employees:

  • Security: A detailed termination document outlining financial settlements and other critical aspects.
  • Assurance: Receiving a defined financial package.

For Employers:

  • Protection: Assurance that the employee will not make any future claims.
  • Clarity: A clear and legally binding end to the employment relationship.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to accept a Settlement Agreement?

No, you don’t have to accept a Settlement Agreement. Your employer should give you a reasonable period of time to consider your response. Your decision should be based on the value of the offer, your situation, and any future claims you may have against your employer.

Do I need a Solicitor?

Yes, you do. For a Settlement Agreement to become legally binding, you will need to use the services of a Solicitor to obtain comprehensive legal advice. Your employer is responsible for covering the reasonable legal costs of this process.

What should I do if I have been offered a Settlement Agreement?

If you have been offered a Settlement Agreement, contact GLP Solicitors immediately to obtain comprehensive legal advice. Remember, you must use the services of an independent Solicitor, and this cost is covered by your employer.
