What is a settlement agreement?
A settlement agreement is a legally binding contract between an employee and an employer that sets out clear stipulations for things like termination payments, redundancy, and other sums. Formerly known as a Compromise Agreement, a settlement agreement is typically offered on the agreement that an employee will not pursue a matter in a tribunal or court. Settlement agreements tend to be used by employers who want to avoid drawn-out disputes, and can only be recognised in law if a lawyer/solicitor or certified trained union advisor signs off on the agreement. Specialist employment solicitors in these cases will advise employees on the merits of any claim, as well as identifying any discrimination or injustice.
When might a settlement agreement be offered?
While settlement agreements are most commonly offered as a result of termination-related issues, other instances when an employer may offer a settlement agreement also include:
- Raised grievances
- Employment disputes
- Discrimination cases
What are the benefits of a settlement agreement?
A settlement agreement that’s overseen by experienced solicitors offers a range of benefits, including certainty, satisfactory agreements, and a clean break from difficult employment. The security offered by settlement agreements can especially help to ensure ample reimbursement and a clear path forward for employees who could otherwise spend extended periods in court.

Your legal responsibility
Settlement agreements are only valid if they are overseen and signed off by an independent legal advisor as set out by UK law. This is why most employers will cover the costs of an employee’s independent legal counsel, and it’s another reason why you could benefit from having our settlement agreement lawyers on your side. Not only will we advocate for you
throughout the process, but we’ll also ensure that a contract is legally binding and always valid to protect your rights.
Settlement agreements can quickly become stressful, and seeking legal counsel early on in this process is crucial for securing the best possible agreement. We understand that at Astons Solicitors, which is why we guarantee same-day advice via either a face-to-face appointment or a phone call during which we’ll discuss the basics of your case and advise you on what exactly we can do to help.
