A Law Firm Experienced in Creating Settlement Agreements
Settlement agreements are required when an employer wishes to dismiss an employee without following procedures or without having a fair reason for dismissal. It is a legally binding document under the terms of which, the employee receives a specified amount of severance pay in return for their agreement that they will not pursue any future legal claims against the company.
Drafted by a specialist employment solicitor, a settlement agreement typically contains:
- restrictions placed on the employee’s future employment;
- the amount of financial compensation the company will pay the employee;
- assurances made by either the employee or the employer;
- the reference the employer will give;
- details of what other employees will be told about the termination.
They can also contain details of a number of other related issues; the above is merely a sample.
