What are the benefits of a settlement agreement?

What are the benefits of a settlement agreement?

A settlement agreement is beneficial to both parties. The employer, on the one hand, avoids lengthy, time-consuming litigation and expense, and the employee, in turn, does not have to face the financial risk involved in pursuing an employment tribunal claim.

The main features of a Settlement Agreement: -

  • End date of employment.
  • How much notice the employee will be entitled to and how much notice pay they will receive.
  • How many holidays they have left and how these will be paid upon termination
  • What tax will be due on these payments
  • Any bonuses or commissions due
  • What will happen to any pension payments
  • The return of any company property the employee has in their possession
  • A waiver made by the employee stating they will not bring any employment tribunal claims or grievances against their employer once the agreement has been signed
Why do I need a solicitor?

Why do I need a solicitor?

An agreement whereby you waive your rights to bring an employment claim can only be recognised in law if a solicitor, certified trade union, or adviser signs it off. At McEwan Fraser Legal, our team of specialist employment law solicitors would be delighted to assist you with providing advice on the merits of any potential legal claim you may have against your employer and the amount of money you would be likely to receive at an Employment Tribunal by way of compensation.
