Settlement agreements for a smooth exit
There are some occasions where it is prudent to use a settlement agreement when an employee is exiting an organisation. A settlement agreement offers a convenient way to settle claims that a departing employee may have and avoid an Employment Tribunal claim being brought by the employee.
Where employers are using old settlement agreements, it is important to note that as legislation is constantly changing, settlement agreements need regular amending and updating to ensure they are compliant. If your settlement agreement has been poorly drafted, you will still be vulnerable to the possibility of tribunal proceedings.
