Frequently asked Questions
A settlement agreement is a legally binding contract made between an employee and employer. It usually sets out the terms governing the termination of employment between the parties. When an employee enters into a settlement agreement, they would generally obtain a termination payment and in return agree to not commence a legal claim against their employer.
A settlement agreement may be offered in the course of employment to bring a clean, cost-effective and sometimes amicable end to the employees contract of employment. Whilst not all settlement agreements are provided in the event of a dispute between an employer and employee, they are most often provided when disputes occur or are potentially about to occur.
You are under no obligation to accept a settlement agreement and should only do so upon receiving independent legal advice. Once you have received independent legal advice, a member of our team will complete an adviser’s certificate to inform your employer that you have received independent legal advice. It is only once the settlement agreement and adviser certificate have been signed is the agreement binding.
We will carefully go through your settlement agreement with you and thoroughly explain the terms and consequences of the agreement in a way that is easy to understand. You are welcome to ask as many questions as necessary to assist your understanding of the settlement agreement. Terminating your employment is a big deal and therefore we want to ensure you fully understand the terms of any agreement which has the potential to terminate your employment.
