FOR MOST OF US, JOB SECURITY AND A RELIABLE INCOME ARE AMONG THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE.
So, it’s no surprise that when companies decide to cut jobs, the relationships between employees and their employer can become very tense.
There may come a time when a formal agreement needs to be reached by both parties on how to resolve an existing dispute and avoid conflict in the future.
Carlsons are experienced employment settlement agreement solicitors who work with either the employer or their employee to reach agreement over the end of an employment.
WHAT IS A SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT?
Settlement agreements end the right of an employee to make any employment claim against their employer once a sum of money and/or other compromise has been agreed and accepted by the employee.
For the employer it means there is no risk of a future claim relating to that individual’s employment; for the employee, a Settlement Agreement can often work in your favour and secure you a good financial deal.
WHY YOU NEED A SOLICITOR.
Under the terms of a settlement agreement, you must seek specialist independent legal advice on the terms and effect of the agreement. Without an independent opinion, the agreement is invalid.
HOW WE CAN HELP.
Carlsons specialise in one-off compromise and bulk redundancy, drafting both unique and standard fit agreements and offering professional employment law advice with a high standard of client care.
