What is a Settlement Agreement?
A Settlement Agreement (previously known as a “compromise agreement”) is a legally binding agreement following the termination of your employment. It usually provides for a severance payment together with other benefits to be paid by your employer, in return for which you agree not to make any claim to an employment tribunal. Once signed and certified by an independent solicitor, a settlement agreement becomes binding as if it were made by an employment tribunal itself. The settlement agreement will deal with many terms.
