What is a Settlement Agreement?

A Settlement Agreement is often referred to as a ‘redundancy agreement’. If you are faced with potential redundancy or have volunteered for redundancy, your employer will usually want you to sign up to a proposed Settlement Agreement. This agreement sets out the full terms of a settlement between an employer and an employee and prevents the employee from bringing certain legal claims against the employer. Properly drafted Settlement Agreements are legally binding, which is why the law says they are only valid if you have taken independent legal advice on the terms and effects of the settlement agreement before signing.
