There may be a time when you need to consider bringing a working relationship with an employee to an end, perhaps because of poor performance, ill health or misconduct.
While employment law protects employees from being unfairly dismissed, a settlement agreement offers the benefit of a mutually acceptable clean break between business and worker.
Gotelee’s employment law experts can help you negotiate a severance package and settlement agreement, providing you with the reassurance that no further claims can be made against your organisation in the future.
