If you have been offered a settlement agreement by your employer, it is a legal requirement that you receive independent advice on the terms and effect of the agreement. Our Employment Lawyers will take the time to fully understand your circumstances and fiercely defend your best interests when it comes to negotiating a settlement agreement.
Three Graces Legal has not only expert understanding of what you should be offered as part of your agreement, but also tough negotiation skills to get you everything you are entitled to. Employees normally only have a limited time in which to decide whether to sign the settlement, and therefore it is crucial that you can work with solicitors who are able to quickly grasp the nettle of your case and to advise as to whether the proposed offer represents a good deal. Three Graces Legal has the expert solicitors able to do this but if need be, negotiate tenaciously to better your deal. To discuss your specific circumstances with a lawyer who can help, call us today on 0151 659 1070 or complete our online enquiry form and we will get back to you right away.
Settlement agreement lawyers, Liverpool and across England & Wales
Three Graces Legal regularly assist clients with all aspects of settlement agreements, under a broad variety of circumstances. Normally, a settlement agreement is offered to bring an employment dispute to an end. The employee will waive certain rights to bring a claim against their employer in return for the terms included in the settlement agreement.
The terms of the agreement are negotiated between the employer and the employee, but in order for the agreement to be legally binding, the employee must have received independent advice on the terms and effect of the settlement agreement offered. We can help you navigate this situation, accompany you to meetings, and negotiate on your behalf to ensure that you have everything you need to move on with your professional life. We will do all we can to ensure that you obtain the best deal for your circumstances.
Why should I sign a settlement agreement?
Settlement agreements can be beneficial for both employers and employees. Where the terms of the agreement are right for you, you can benefit from: a tax-free sum of up to £30,000 (although you may be awarded more), a preferred termination date, guaranteed good reference from your employer and you can also avoid any uncertainty that may be involved in pursuing a claim against your employer, because even if you win your case you may not achieve the full compensation that you’re seeking.
Whether it is right for you to sign a settlement agreement will greatly depend on the circumstances, so it is essential to seek the advice of an expert employment lawyer who can advise you fully.
