Settlement Agreements

We can prepare, negotiate and offer expert advice on settlement agreements.

A settlement agreement is a contract that records an employee’s agreement not to pursue a claim relating, in most cases, to the termination of their employment against their employer in exchange for compensation. The agreement must comply with certain legal requirements and the employee must obtain independent legal advice for the agreement to be effective and enforceable.

For employees, we will carefully consider whether it is in your best interest to sign the agreement, and can often negotiate far better terms and conditions for you, including a higher compensation amount and better overall severance package. We can usually offer a same day service for advising on a settlement agreement.

For employers we can guide you through the settlement process with confidence, ensuring that the potential dispute is settled as sensitively, quickly and as inexpensively as possible.
