Settlement Agreements - employee advice 

Is your employment being ended by redundancy or has your employer offered you a settlement agreement?

It’s a legal requirement to have your settlement agreement checked by a solicitor. Your employer is legally required to make a contribution towards your legal fees. We offer a contact-free legal service by Zoom or Teams and can review the settlement agreement and provide you with legal advice within 24 hours without the need to meet face-to-face. However, if you would prefer a face to face appointment this can also be arranged.

Our employment solicitors specialise in reviewing, preparing and advising on settlement agreements. With a wealth of expertise in dealing with settlement agreements and Employment Tribunal claims, we can provide you with quality, easy to understand advice.

Independent legal advice for employees for settlement agreements


Employees need to get independent legal advice by law if they wish to enter into an agreement.  Without this advice an agreement may not be binding or enforceable.


The good news is that most employers recognise the need for a binding agreement will generally make a contribution towards the employee’s legal costs – which could mean the employee has nothing to pay for advice.


An employee signing a settlement agreement will waive their rights to bring claims to the employment tribunal, so it is important that you get the best advice.  We can advise you whether you have a claim to the tribunal, how strong that claim is and whether it would be proportionate to make the claim.  Armed with this advice you can make the best decision for you.


Often there is scope to negotiate the terms of settlement agreements, especially the amounts being paid and restrictions upon employees after they leave their employment.  We can help get the best deal for you.


Of course, if there is no agreement reached we can assist employees with tribunal proceedings.
