Settlement Agreement Definition
Settlement agreements are typically received by an employee once their employment has been terminated by their employer. It is a legally binding document or agreement.
An employer gives severance pay to an employee in exchange for them not raising or taking a claim
It usually provides for a severance payment made to the employee from the employer, on the agreement that the employee does not pursue or raise any future claim in an Employment Tribunal.
In order for the settlement agreement to be binding, you will need to take advice from a qualified employment lawyer.

Typically the advice will not cost the employee anything. The employer will cover the costs for the initial legal advice. DPH Legal will always notify a client upfront if any additional fees apply.
