You might be in the situation where a settlement agreement is on the cards - or could be on the horizon. We've explained more on when a settlement agreement might be offered by your employer.
- Redundancy situations where the employer is paying enhanced redundancy payments and in return wants certainty that departing staff won’t sue in connection with their redundancy dismissal (or anything else associated with their employment);
- Where there are performance or conduct concerns but the employer offers a settlement as an alternative to following a lengthy performance management or disciplinary process;
- Where an employee has raised a grievance, and the employer would prefer to circumvent the grievance process and head off potential claims;
- Where an employee has already issued legal proceedings against an employer (or former employer) and there is an active tribunal claim, but the parties wish to agree terms on which that dispute can be settled.
