What is a Settlement Agreement?
Why do I need to take legal advice?
Why FMB Solicitors?
What documentation do we need to see?
To work on your settlement agreement we need to see the proposed Settlement Agreement or Compromise Agreement, your Contract of Employment and correspondence leading to the offer of the Settlement.
If you provide your employer with our contact details, your employer would usually email or fax the Settlement Agreement and Contract of Employment to us.
Do I need to sign the Settlement Agreement?
If you are not happy with the Settlement Agreement or Compromise Agreement, you do not need to sign it.
You could then proceed to bring your claims before an Employment Tribunal. Please remember that Settlement Agreements or Compromise Agreements can include tax efficient elements and refusing to sign will jeopardise this. However, unacceptable Settlement Agreements or Compromise Agreements can often be improved through negotiations.
Our Solicitors are experienced negotiators as well as legal experts.
