Settlement Agreements

Resolving employment disputes

Hart Brown’s employment team has a long history of providing specialist advice on settlement agreements to all types of employees up to senior executive and company director level across a wide range of business sectors.

Settlement agreements are frequently used in redundancy situations but can be used to resolve any type of employment dispute.

We understand that losing your job can be a very stressful time. We provide clear, practical, cost effective advice on the terms of the proposed settlement agreement and in particular the implications on your ability to pursue any potential claim you may have against your employer.

We will take care of the details so you don’t need to worry.

We will also advise you whether the offer represents a reasonable settlement taking into account the various claims you may have. Our lawyers are skilled negotiators with a proven track record of successfully negotiating more favourable terms and better financial packages than originally proposed by the employer.
