Settlement agreements

However well you run your organisation and manage your staff, there may be times when it is right to part company with an employee. This is when you need protection from the risk of an Employment Tribunal. The only way to protect yourself is by coming to a form of legally binding agreement with the employee.

This usually means the employee agrees to leave the business in consideration for payment of a financial settlement or on other terms. It is vital that such agreements are drawn up in the proper way and that all the required legal safeguards are in place. If this is not done, the employee can take the settlement money – and still go to an Employment Tribunal. We deal with such cases every day and can guide you through the process and ensure your position is as watertight as possible.

 

The best way to avoid an employment tribunal is to have all policies and procedures in place and up-to-date. To help you with this, Croner provides the following services:
