Settlement Agreements & Exit Packages

Our experienced team of specialist Employment law solicitors, based in Reading and Henley-on-Thames, can advise you in relation to a settlement agreement and exit package, including on those areas below.

A Settlement Agreement (previously known as a Compromise Agreement) is a written contract whereby your employment with your employer terminates on agreed terms. Typically you will receive a compensation payment in exchange for you waiving any potential employment claims against your (former) employer. In essence it financially compensates you whilst limiting your employer’s liability so that a line is drawn under the end of the employment relationship with a ‘clean break’ being achieved. Settlement agreements can also be used for redundancy and retirement scenarios as well as being a way to settle contentious situations without the rigmarole and cost of making a claim at an Employment Tribunal.

If you receive a settlement agreement you are required to get independent legal advice for it to be valid. This is where we can help guide you through the process of reviewing it with you and, if appropriate, negotiating on its terms.

Please see further information on our team of Employment Law solicitors and our full range of services. 

What We Can Help You With

  • Whether the compensation payment offered is adequate depending on your circumstances and the strength of any potential claim you may have.
  • Whether the tax treatment is correct and the tax consequences of how the payment will be made to you.
  • Understanding your obligations and warranties under the proposed Agreement and those of your employer.
  • Negotiating any changes with your employer on your behalf to secure you the best possible outcome.
