Negotiating a settlement agreement

HELPING YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU’RE SIGNING.

Signing a settlement agreement means that you are unable to bring a claim in a Court Tribunal against your former employer. In return for this, you normally get financial compensation, and so it is important you know what rights you are agreeing to sign away.

We can represent you in negotiations with your employer, including whether you should actually sign the agreement. We will also advise you on other terms in the agreement, such as agreeing not to poach your old employer’s staff or to compete against them for a period of time, non-financial benefits, confidentiality clauses, and references.
