Signing your agreement

What is a settlement agreement?

What should be included in a settlement agreement?

  • Firstly, a tax-free compensation sum payable to the employee (up to a maximum of £30,000): Once you have submitted your settlement agreement for review, one of our settlement agreement solicitors can advise you on this matter. If they feel you are not receiving enough compensation, your settlement agreement solicitor will recommend negotiating on the compensation.

    Negotiating settlement agreement compensation very often represents a wise investment, given the legal costs involved are hugely outweighed by the additional compensation received.

  • Secondly, a legal fee contribution by your employer: As your employer contributes towards your legal fee, we can normally offer you a FREE settlement agreement service.

  • Next, confidentiality clauses: A confidentiality clause requires both the employee and employer to not disclose matters related to the settlement agreement.

  • Then, provision of a reference: This ensures you are able to receive a reference from your former employer in the future, allowing you to secure future employment elsewhere.

  • Next, the requirement for a solicitor to advise you on the terms of the settlement agreement: Our settlement agreement solicitors are able to advise you on the terms and effects of your settlement agreement within 24 hours. The quickest way to receive settlement agreement advice is the submit your settlement agreement via our legal portal.

  • Finally, termination payments such as notice pay, holiday pay, bonus, etc: Your holiday entitlement, any bonus, plus your notice period should be paid as part of your settlement agreement. Our Settlement agreement solicitors will ensure this is paid to you.
