In our experience, settlement agreements are used widely by employers. They allow an employer and employee to terminate employment in a civilised fashion with the employer knowing they cannot be sued and the employee receiving appropriate compensation.
If you are a director or manager who needs advice on a settlement agreement that you have been offered by your employer, we can help you. We also draft settlement agreements for employers.
Even the best managed businesses will be required to defend employment tribunal proceedings from time to time. Since the ACAS Early Conciliation Scheme started in 2014, your company will be approached by ACAS to see if your company wishes to settle the claim. We can represent you in that process and also at the Employment Tribunal, if you do not wish to, or are unable to settle.
