Settlement Agreements are a useful means of achieving a clean-break with an employee, either where the relationship with the employee has run its course for whatever reason, or where the employee has raised or threatened to raise particular claims.

In these circumstances, as an employer, it can make commercial sense to pay more than strictly necessary to the employee, in return for the comfort of knowing that you will not be hearing from that employee again.

Gorvins Approach to Settlement Agreements

Whatever the circumstances, whether it be a means of disposing of a very real risk of liability, or simply an amicable parting of the ways, we can assist with the process of introducing, negotiating and drafting a Settlement Agreement, to afford your business the best possible protection.

Our Settlement Agreements can be tailored specifically to your needs, and deal with such additional considerations as garden leave, business protection and restrictive covenants, future assistance and employer property, in addition to the incorporation of best practice in dealing with the key waiver of claims by the employee and protecting you from unnecessary exposure to additional tax liability.

Bulk Settlement Agreements

As well as drafting settlement agreements for employer clients our specialist solicitors also have experience in dealing with Volume/Bulk Settlement Agreements. Where you are making large scale redundancies we can project manage the logistics of your settlement agreement project and provide independent legal advice to your employees on their settlement agreements. We can:

  • Arrange appointments with the employees concerned
  • Write to your employees individually to advise them about the process and Gorvins’ involvement
  • Be available to advise your employees both at your premises and/or at our offices in Cheshire at times that suit both parties

By working with one individual firm of solicitors, we aim to simplify the process by working in partnership with you. We help to simplify the process by dealing with one independent firm of solicitors working in partnership with you. We can provide you with one main contact who will liaise with the relevant department to ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible.
