A settlement agreement is a legally binding agreement created after the termination of your employment. It usually provides for a compensation payment made to you by your employer, in return for which you agree not to pursue any claim you may have at an Employment Tribunal. In order for the settlement agreement to be binding, you will need to take advice from a qualified employment solicitor.

Settlement agreements used to be called compromise agreements; they are legally binding contracts determined between an employer and employee to fix a dispute and generally to come up with a payment and/or reference. The agreements are a voluntary settlement that can be offered at any stage of an employment relationship and it is certainly not limited to cases where an individual’s employment has been terminated.
Once in place, the settlement agreement rules out an employment tribunal claim or court action. So it can be a cost-effective way to settle a dispute without going through the stress and time of court action. For a settlement agreement to stand, an employee must receive advice from an independent adviser. It is always advisable to get the best possible advice and that’s where Aeris Employment Law steps in.
