Stuart McNeil, Partner at Bevirs, talks settlements agreements and why it’s so important to get independent legal advice.
A settlement agreement is a voluntary, legally binding, way to bring employment to an end on agreed terms. It’s a way of achieving a clean break and for you to receive compensation for any potential claims you may have, in exchange for agreeing to drop the right to bring any future claims against your employer.
We can offer you, specialist, legal advice and guide you through the negotiations with your employer to reach an outcome that will safeguard your interests.
The costs involved are usually payable by your employer, at least in part, but most often in full.
If you require any advice on the above subject then please contact Stuart McNeil on 01793 532363.
