Settlement Agreements

Published: 9 April 2020

If you have a complaint against your employer which you could take to an employment tribunal, they might offer you a Settlement Agreement to stop you making that claim. 

A Settlement Agreement is a legal contract between you and your employer usually where the employer will pay you a sum of money and you agree not to issue a tribunal claim or claim in any other court (or continue to pursue an existing claim). 

Your employer is likely to want to keep the agreement confidential. 

The employer will usually pay for you to get independent legal advice because if you sign a Settlement Agreement without getting independent legal advice first it is not binding on you. 

Bill Martin has extensive experience in advising clients upon the terms and effects of Settlement Agreements and is happy to advise you without the need of a face to face appointment.
