Compromise Agreements

Settlement Agreements

While there are many advantages to a settlement agreement if you have been dismissed or made redundant by your employer, it’s important that you don’t sign anything without taking legal advice first.

The attentive employment law experts at Davis Blank Furniss Solicitors will look at the agreement you have been offered and work hard to secure you the best possible deal.

How we can help

For both parties, the appeal of a settlement agreement is that it can resolve any disputes between you reasonably quickly, without the need for complex and expensive legal proceedings. Davis Blank Furniss Solicitors can help ensure that this doesn’t tempt you to sign the first document presented to you.

Depending on the circumstances of your departure, it may be possible to negotiate changes to the settlement agreement that will work in your favour.

For example, your employer may offer financial compensation in exchange for you not making an employment claim against them. While this is often an acceptable compromise, the amount you’re initially offered may be substantially lower than you’re entitled to.

Your agreement also needn’t be limited to financial compensation. You could ask for a reference to be included as part of the deal, in order to ensure your future career can get back on track as quickly as possible.

Crucially, our employment team will review the document and ensure it doesn’t contain any clauses that are not in your best interests.
