We know how effective settlement agreements can be for employers when used properly and in the right circumstances by enabling an employer to resolve a dispute with an employee, while avoiding the risk, cost and uncertainty of litigation.
Effective settlements agreements will contain a number of important clauses including those aimed at preventing unfair competition once an employee has left; avoiding adverse publicity; structuring payments in a tax efficient manner; preserving confidentiality; ensuring the return of property; and where applicable, securing resignations from office.
We regularly draft settlement agreements on behalf of clients and provide clear, straightforward advice and guidance aimed at getting them signed swiftly with as little disruption to your business as possible.
If you need advice on the drafting of a settlement agreement or are thinking about asking a member of staff to sign one, please get in touch.
