A settlement agreement is a legally binding agreement between you and your employer.
If you sign a settlement agreement, you are agreeing to give up your rights to make any claims against your employer in return for a sum of money.
Once a settlement agreement has been signed, it is almost impossible to unravel if it turns out to be a bad deal – which is why it’s essential you get the very best advice from the outset.
Marie ensured that a complex agreement was presented in a clearly defined manner
Gotelee’s team of employment lawyers have advised on thousands of settlement agreements for individuals – from complex arrangements at director level to more straightforward agreements.
Given that you are signing away your rights to make any future claims, we will fully assess your circumstances to ensure a settlement agreement is the right solution for you and ensure you are properly compensated. We will consider whether or not you have any legitimate grievances against your employer and inform you as to the likely outcome if you were to make a claim.
If the compensation offered to you is too low or the terms of the settlement agreement are unfair, we will renegotiate the deal and make sure that the financial offer is increased. We can also add terms that may benefit you, including a reference.
Most employers will pay the bulk of your legal fees so you can take advice before signing your settlement agreement.
As with everything we do, our charges are very reasonable and tailored to your needs. Usually, we will agree a fixed fee for your work, so that you know where you stand from the outset. Our lawyers will usually be able to see you at short notice.
