Settlement Agreements

Settlement Agreements (formally known as Compromise Agreements) are legally binding contracts. They can cover a wide range of employment issues such as ending an employment relationship or resolving an ongoing workplace dispute and can contain highly complicated and comprehensive points of Employment Law.

What do they involve?

For employers, they can offer peace of mind that the employee signing the contract has agreed to certain requirements and is willing to waive specific Employment Law claims such as not taking any further or future legal action. Normally, Settlement Agreements are coupled with a payment and benefits package and occasionally a reference from employer to employee but for a Settlement Agreement to be valid the law sets out strict requirements which must be adhered to.
