What is a Settlement Agreement, and when do I need a specialist Solicitor?
Settlement Agreements (previously called Compromise Agreements) are legally binding contracts between employers and employees designed to formalise the end of employment procedure. During this process, a sum of money will typically be agreed to form an exit package or cover severance pay.
A Settlement Agreement takes away the need for any complex legal processes and will be mutually beneficial to both employer and employee. It enables both parties the chance to negotiate and agree on a fair outcome.
A typical Settlement Agreement will conclude in the employer agreeing to pay a sum of money to the employee. The exact figure considers factors such as holiday pay owed, benefits and redundancy pay. In turn, the employee will agree that this is a final decision and further legal procedures cannot be taken.
It is not a legal requirement to obtain a Settlement Agreement in the UK, but if you want to make sure you are leaving with the very best exit package available to you, it will be in your best interests. Ask your employer or HR manager for one before you leave your job.
