Settlement Agreements are used when an employee and employer want to come to an amicable solution to avoid tribunal proceedings. A Settlement Agreement is sometimes referred to as a “golden handshake.”
By proposing a Settlement Agreement, you can be certain that your departing employee will be prevented from bringing a claim at the Employment Tribunal against your business. Furthermore, it will help you avoid a public Employment Tribunal claim and will ensure that your interest and reputation are protected.
Davenport Solicitors has considerable experience in bringing employment law matters to a close in an amicable manner while protecting the rights of employers involved in the process.
Employers need to be cautious when presenting a settlement sum to an employee, to ensure that they do not expose themselves to any potential claims. Whist we would not advise employers to accept a poor or unfitting agreement to avoid a tribunal process, we believe that the parties will ultimately show a willingness to reach a suitable agreement without resorting to Tribunal, as it is usually in the interest of both parties to do so.
Our experience and success in this area means that we are a natural fit for your needs. However, we believe that every business is unique, therefore every Settlement Agreement is likely to be different. You can be rest assured that we will provide you with a bespoke service at all times, ensuring that your business is protected.
