If an employee has been involved in a dispute with their employer, even if it never gets to the stage of a formal claim, the employer and the employee may decide to settle the dispute using a settlement agreement.
This is usually an agreement that the employee will leave the company in return for a payment. There are typically several conditions, including a duty of confidentiality.
The law requires that the employee have independent legal advice on the agreement, and this is usually paid for by the employer.
Whether you are an employee who has been offered a settlement agreement or you are an employer looking for a law firm to which you can refer your employee, Specters provide independent advice on settlement agreements.
Our payment is not dependant on the advice we provide and we have no incentive to provide anything other than impartial advice on the rights and obligations of each party under the agreement.
