What is a Settlement Agreement?

Settlement agreements are often given to employees with over two years’ service at the start or end of company procedures such as:

  • Protected Conversations;
  • Performance Management Procedures;
  • Disciplinary Procedures;
  • Redundancy Consultation; or,
  • Grievance Procedures.

You must engage a solicitor to advise you on your settlement agreement in order for the document to be lawfully entered into and the fee for advising on your settlement agreement will be paid by your employer.

If we advise you that we believe that your settlement agreement can be negotiated, we can offer a variety of funding options to you, but we will always demand that your employer covers 100% of your legal fees.

Here are some common questions we get around Settlement Agreements:

Q – Do I have to accept a settlement agreement?

A – No, you do not. It may be in your interests to accept a settlement agreement, but it all depends on the value of the settlement agreement offer, your specific situation, what claims you may have against your employer and your desired career path.

Q – Can I negotiate the value of my settlement agreement?

A – Yes, you can, if there are grounds for improving the offer that you have been made. Our partners will speak with you on the day you contact us to review with you whether or not you can negotiate your settlement agreement, the likely value of the outcome of any negotiation and how you can achieve this. We significantly improve the value of the vast majority of settlements we negotiate.

Q – Do I need an independent solicitor to advise me on my settlement agreement?

A – Yes, you do. As a matter of law, you need to take independent legal advice from a solicitor who has no relationship with your employer to advise you on your rights and the terms of the agreement. Your employer will pay your legal fees for taking this advice.

Q – Will agreeing a settlement agreement affect my employment prospects?

A – No, it will not. Settlement agreements are now an extremely common way of ending the employment relationship. Your employment contract sets out the terms of your employment with your employer, whereas a settlement agreement simply sets out the terms of the termination of that relationship. You will agree not to take legal proceedings against your employer and give various, standard warrantees, and in return you will receive financial payments from your employer.

Q – Will my new employer know that I have signed a settlement agreement?

A – No, it will not. Settlement agreements are confidential between the parties entering into them. There will be a clause in your settlement agreement that binds you and your employer to terms of confidentiality, meaning that no one can disclose the fact of, or contents of, the settlement agreement unless in specific and very narrow circumstances. You will get a reference guarantee in the settlement agreement that commits your employer to giving a form of reference (and no other form) to your new employer.

For tailored advice to your situation, why not speak to a highly experienced team of employment lawyers and get peace of mind that you are leaving with a fair outcome today.
