Pearsons & Ward - Settlement Agreement Lawyers Yorkshire

Our employment solicitors routinely help both employers and employees with matters related to settlement agreements. 

Settlement agreement advice for employers

If you are facing difficulties with an employee and wish to dismiss them but are concerned about the practicalities, or if you suspect they may try to bring a claim against your organisation at an employment tribunal, a settlement agreement can be a useful means to bringing the dispute to an end.

We understand that initiating such discussions with an employee may seem challenging, and you may have concerns about following the right procedures. However, you can contact our team before approaching the situation with your employee, to receive specialist advice about how best to move forward.

Our employment law team will advise you fully on the procedures and terms of any settlement agreement. We can help you to understand what might be the appropriate settlement amount, and on any other terms that may be favourable for you to include in the agreement. You may wish to prevent the employee from making derogatory comments about your business or from discussing the settlement agreement. We will make sure your interests are protected.

Settlement agreement advice for employees

If you have been offered a settlement agreement by your employer, it is a legal requirement that you seek independent advice on the terms of the contract. Our lawyers will look carefully at your agreement and circumstances and can determine what is a fair settlement for you. We will expertly guide you through the process of negotiation with your employer, protecting your interests at every stage. You may wish to ensure that you receive a useful reference, a higher monetary settlement or favourable terms for bringing your employment to an end. We can help.
