A settlement agreement is a legally binding way to bring an employment relationship to an end. It’s a no-risk method of achieving a clean break on agreed terms.
Entirely voluntary, the aim is to avoid ending up at an Employment Tribunal. You may be offered one whether you are leaving on amicable terms, or have already left, or have issued a grievance or claim against your employer.
You can use a solicitor, a barrister, a trade union official or someone from an organisation like the Citizen’s Advice Bureau as long as they have been certified as competent to give the advice and have the relevant insurance. We recommend that you choose a specialist employment law solicitor.
