Settlement Agreements, Glasgow

Get in touch

If you want to end your employment, or you have a potential dispute with your current employer, it may be appropriate to enter into a settlement agreement.

Settlement agreements are voluntary, negotiable, legally binding agreements and are a way for employers and employees to come to an agreement at the end of their working relationship. 

A settlement agreement, formerly known as a compromise agreement, is a written agreement between an employee and an employer, which terminates the employment on agreed terms. 

An agreed sum is paid by the employer as compensation to the employee and in return, the employee agrees not to pursue a work-related claim.

Our expert settlement agreement lawyers work on these every day. We will ensure we achieve the best possible outcome for you.

Choosing settlement agreements in Scotland

A settlement agreement should be mutually beneficial to both parties. 

The employer avoids lengthy, time-consuming litigation and expense and the employee does not have to face the financial risk involved in pursuing an employment tribunal claim. 

The agreement can also be negotiated to include a written work reference from the employer on the termination of their contract and the employee will benefit from an agreed financial sum within an agreed timescale.

Before agreeing to negotiate a settlement agreement, speak to the dedicated settlement agreement solicitors at Jones Whyte.
