Settlement Agreements (Compromise Agreements)
If you wish to do a deal with your employee to settle a current claim or to avoid a future dispute for your own peace of mind, Jordans Solicitors can advise you on entering into a Settlement Agreement to secure a commercially sensible resolution.
Employment ends for all of us. When it is a new job or time for someone to retire it can be right for everyone. Unfortunately however, sometimes the employment relationship breaks down and this is when our Settlement Agreement solicitors can help guide you through a difficult situation. There may be issues of conduct, capability (performance / ill-health), redundancy, a clash of personalities, a grievance or similar. Where a dispute is not resolved your employee is free to go to the Employment Tribunal. With Employment Tribunal fees having been ruled unlawful by the Supreme Court, there is now little reason for employees not to bring a claim. Whether you win or lose, an Employment Tribunal claim costs your business time and money which is better spent elsewhere.
