Main Services



Employment:  A Settlement Agreement (formerly known as a Compromise Agreement) is a legally binding agreement between you and your employer. This usually provides for a severance payment by the employer in return for your agreement not to pursue any claims in a Tribunal or a Court. The employer will usually require you to keep the terms, for example the amount and the surrounding circumstances of your contract’s termination, confidential.  An agreement whereby you waive your rights to bring an employment claim can only be recognised in law if a solicitor or certified trade union or adviser signs it off.  Your employer should expect to pay a contribution towards your legal fees therefore we always try to cover our fees by seeking payment from your employer rather than from you.
