About Settlement Agreements

A settlement agreement is a legally binding contract that is made between and employer and employee. They are commonly used by employers to resolve employment disputes or to give employee terms for their termination from employment. It is also possible for employees to request a settlement agreement themselves in order to help mutually settle any disputes that they may have.

Settlement agreements usually include a termination payment which covers things like notice pay, redundancy, holiday pay, shares, bonuses and any other benefits. A condition of the employee receiving these payments will be that they agree not to pursue statutory claims in the future against the employer in a court or tribunal for things such as discrimination, unfair dismissal or breach of contract.

The specialists at MJD Solicitors work to assist employers and employees with settlement agreements in Essex, helping them to come to the most effective compromises and providing a clean break on mutually agreed terms.
