If your employer has offered you a settlement agreement, it is vital that you take advice from an experienced employment lawyer.
Key considerations include making sure you are properly financially compensated, and protecting your reputation and ability to further your career after you leave. We ensure that a member of our expert team is at your side every step of the way, to provide the support and advice you need.
We understand that negotiating the terms to end your employment can be a difficult and stressful time. We also appreciate the urgency that often comes with a settlement agreement process and so wherever possible, we offer appointments for the next working day.
For a settlement agreement to be effective, you must take independent legal advice on its terms. One of our specialist employment lawyers will undertake a detailed review of the agreement and meet with you (virtually or face-to-face) to gather all relevant information. We can then advise you on the terms and effect of the agreement and negotiate with your employer on your behalf.
In particular, we can advise you on:
- any legal claims you are giving up
- negotiating an increased settlement, where appropriate
- obtaining an agreed reference
- negotiating internal and external announcements in relation to your departure, and
- ensuring the payment terms are structured appropriately and tax efficiently.
If you do need advice on a settlement agreement or any other issue related to your employment, do not hesitate to get in touch with our Employment team.
