Settlement Agreement Lawyers in St Helens
A settlement agreement is a legally binding contract which brings the employment to an end on terms agreed by both parties, most commonly used in cases of redundancy.
Following a settlement agreement being reached, the employee whose employment has been terminated can then no longer issue a claim in the Employment Tribunal about the issue. In order for a settlement agreement to be legally binding, independent advice must be sought before signing.
Hattons can help with a range of settlement agreements, from the straightforward to those of a complex and high-value nature. We can assist with negotiating, communicating with both parties in order to reach an agreement that can be mutually agreed without having to go to a Tribunal. It is a good idea to speak to an employment solicitor who can help with the negotiation aspect and secure a favourable outcome for you as the employer.
We can also assist with the drafting of a settlement agreement, to ensure that it is done correctly and will be legally binding, offering the protection to both parties that it is intended to create.
