What is a settlement agreement?
A settlement agreement is an agreement between an employee and employer, that settles any legal claims between them. Settlement agreements are common when a legal claim has been filed as they can bring a claim to an end swiftly. If an employer has a claim against them, a settlement agreement can settle a dispute with an employee and end any claims against them, without taking it further. The settlement can include anything, but it is most commonly associated with a sum of money paid to the employee which is negotiated in the agreement.
A settlement agreement aims to prevent the legal claim from escalating and causing further distress and worry for both parties. It also prevents the employee from taking any further legal action against their employer in the future.
