In certain cases, it is neither time nor cost effective to pursue the case in an employment Tribunal, or the associated risks of doing so are too high. We may therefore advise that a settlement agreement is entered into with the employee(s) in question. Settlement agreements were formerly known as compromise agreements.
We advise on the form and content as well as draft settlement agreements, while guiding you through the whole process.
We also guide employers through the process which may culminate in a settlement agreement, for example when entering into off the record “protected conversations” with employees with a view to facilitate the exit of employees.
