Settlement agreements

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.

How can we help?

Our specialist solicitors are the first choice for hundreds of businesses – large and small – in Suffolk, Essex and beyond. Our aim is simple: to guide you to where you need to be with a minimum of fuss and expense

We can advise you:

  • How to best approach the initial discussion;
  • How you can minimise the financial exposure to your business;
  • How to ensure a quick, clean exit that will not destabilise your business.

Our settlement agreements are tailored to your needs – and they are watertight, so you have the peace of mind of knowing that you are fully protected.

In most cases, we can agree a fixed fee for your work so that you can safely budget, with no fear of unexpected bills. We can also offer a monthly fixed price HR fee retainer, which allows you real time expert employment advice all year round at a price you can afford.

Get in touch

You can contact the team by phone on 01473 298126, by email or by completing our quick and easy enquiry form. Alternatively, visit us at one of our offices in Ipswich, Hadleigh, Felixstowe, Melton or Woodbridge.
