What is a settlement agreement?

If you are unhappy at work and you are unable to resolve your differences with your employers, you may decide to reach a financial settlement.

A settlement agreement is a legally binding contract that you and your employer enter into voluntarily.

The purpose of a settlement agreement is to ‘settle’ any differences you have had with your employer and will usually include a financial payment and some other non-financial benefits (for example, a work reference and sometimes more).

Ultimately it is an agreement to formally conclude your employment.

Probably the biggest advantage for you is the opportunity to leave your employment on favourable terms. However, when you sign the agreement, you will give up your right to an employment tribunal and any employment claims that you might have had against your employer.

The service I received was very fast and efficient. I called at 9am after stressing looking for a solicitor the previous day. Hardeep took on my case and everything was done by 2pm the same day. She was very clear and explained everything to do with my settlement agreement. She was very professional and transparent with fees unlike other firms I contacted beforehand. She was patient and also took her time. I would highly recommend her."

" I've looked at Monaco Solicitors for legal advice on a settlement agreement. I was impressed by the level of detailed information on their website, and by the number of positive reviews they receive all around employment law. I've made an enquire, exposing my case, and within minutes I received a reply. I worked with Dippalli Naik, as my legal adviser for this settlement agreement, and she was brilliant, insightful and explained every legal detail as well as possible outcomes in taken the settlement agreement. With her help I was able to renegotiate a better deal.

Not only highly recommend Monaco Solicitors as I will be looking at them as my reference if and whenever I require legal advice again in the future."

Monaco Solicitors are great and unlike traditional law firms who just want your money. They are by far the best legal advisors I've come across. They carefully listened, provided excellent advice, guidance, and helped negotiate a settlement agreement quickly. They treat you with care, humility, and always go the extra mile. A truly outstanding firm I can't thank highly enough! Other law firms can learn a lot from Monaco Solicitors."

" I would highly recommend Hardeep.  She advised me on a Settlement Agreement - a process I found very daunting and distressing, but with Hardeep's excellent advice and support I made it through and the Agreement was finalised. My case wasn't a big earner, but I still felt I received top legal advice. I found communication brilliant both email and phone.  Other staff I spoke to on the phone were always very friendly and approachable.  I would recommend getting in touch with Monaco Solicitors if you need any employment advice."

Chris Hogg gave me some excellent advice when I contacted Monaco initially, when there was no huge expectation that Monaco would benefit. I took his advice about how to approach my employer about a settlement agreement and what to ask for, which was pitched perfectly resulting in a slightly more favourable version of the standard offer our company makes in such circumstances. I then used Chris as my advisor on the contract and he concluded proceedings with no fuss, agreeing one sensible change to the contract with my employer which made everyone’s life easier. I am very happy with the service I received."

I had an excellent experience with Monaco Solicitors. Within a day they got back to me about my query. My lawyer, Chris Hogg called me the next day to explain everything and was super helpful. Within 3 days i had my settlement agreement changed and signed. I am so happy and very pleased. Would definitely recommend and use again."

" A friend referred me to Monaco Solicitors and told me to get in touch with Dippalli Naik as that's who she had dealt with in the past. I contacted Dippalli about a Settlement Agreement that I received from my employer. Dippalli is very knowledgeable, direct and honest. She was upfront about what she could and could not do in my case. Despite the fact that I was out of the country when I was in touch with Dippali, she communicated efficiently by email and phone. She even responded to me on weekends and out of hours due to the nature of my case. She was extremely helpful and very down to earth and she spoke to me as if she were a friend which made me feel alot more calm and comfortable during the case. I highly recommend Monaco Solicitors and Dippalli for Settlement Agreements. I cannot fault their service and how thorough they are with paperwork.
