Employment Settlement Agreements
When your employment ends, it can sometimes involve a Settlement Agreement. Norton Peskett can explain what this is, help you agree one and make sure your rights are taken care of.
When the decision is taken to end an employment relationship, it can be a time of uncertainty. Disputes can arise over the decision to dismiss. Directors can fall out over future business strategy or investment decisions. You may feel your position is untenable or that your employer wants you to resign and is forcing you to do so. Alternatively, your employment may end due to restructuring of the company.
Settlement agreements are legally binding documents. Norton Peskett can explain what one is and what it means and more importantly whether you should you sign one. In return for an agreed financial amount, you are agreeing to waive any claims you may have. Your claim may have a higher potential value. We explain what your options are and if this is the best outcome. Terms need to be agreed and changed by us on your behalf. At every step, we use plain English, not legal jargon. If you sign, you know fully what you are agreeing to.
